Ukraine fighting culture war amid Russian invasion

From Global News.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February – attacking homes and businesses and occupying Ukrainian territories – the country has been fighting a second war: defending its cultural identity, which many agree is also under attack.

Museums, galleries and other centres of culture have been heavily damaged by the Russian offensive.

The Kuindzhi Art Museum in Mariupol was destroyed on March 21 when the eastern port city was shelled. Russian attacks also damaged the Regional Art Museum in Chernihiv, the Kharkiv Art Museum and the Hryhoriy Skovoroda National Literary Memorial Museum in Skovorodynivka.

As Sean O’Shea reports from Kharkiv, Ukrainian’s are supporting their cultural institutions despite the risk of a Russian attack.
