Congress “Rethinking Ukraine and Europe: New Challenges for Historians” in Vilnius

On September 15-17, the international congress “Rethinking Ukraine and Europe: New Challenges for Historians” took place in Vilnius, where a graduate of our department and a member of the Archaeological Landscape Monitoring Group, Ivanova Oleksandra, took part in the panel “Destruction by the russian federation of museums, archives and objects of cultural heritage in Ukraine”.

Oleksandra’s speech was supposed to be devoted to the comparison of the Balkan and Ukrainian experience of protection and preservation of archaeological heritage during military operations, but due to the lack of opportunity to join the seminar Pavlo Shydlovskyi Oleksandra’s speech presented two topics at once and related to the monitoring of archaeological heritage objects during war and comparison of Ukrainian experience with foreign experience.

The congress brought together leading Ukrainian, Polish and Lithuanian historians, museologists, teachers and scientists, and the experience of participating in it was extremely valuable, because we were able to convey to a wide range of the scientific community the importance of protecting and preserving archaeological objects as part of the cultural heritage of Ukraine.

For your attention, a recording of the panel “Destruction by the russian federation of museums, archives and objects of cultural heritage in Ukraine” was made.
