UNESCO has given an answer on the monument to Knyaz Vladimir in Moscow

UNESCO’s International Council does not recommend the erection of the monument to Knyaz Vladimir on Borovitskaya Square in Moscow.

 

As the Moscow City Duma’s press office told Construction.ru, the answer was received following a claim from the RFCP deputy Elena Shuvalova to the Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova.

The letter, signed by Grigory Ordjonikidze, Executive Secretary of the RF Committee for UNESCO, says that the decision on the monument’s erection was taken as part of the events dedicated to the 1000th anniversary of Knyaz Vladimir’s death, but no consultations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation were held, and UNESCO’s 1972 Convention requirements were not taken into account.

The International Committee thinks that, “the monument’s erection may have a negative impact on the outstanding objects of worldwide cultural heritage”.

To negate this, it is recommended that another place be chosen for the monument. The Council recommended explaining to the Moscow deputies the necessity of fulfilling the commitments for Russia’s participation in international treaties.
