Iraq asks Russia to help restore ruined cultural objects


Iraq authorities have addressed Russia with a request to help restoring objects of the cultural heritage, TASS informs. As per the Russian Ambassador to Iraq Haidar Hadi, the majority of the monuments was destroyed by the Islamic State terrorists organization banned in Russia. 

Ambassador has mentioned that Bagdad welcomes any help from the Russian specialists for restoring the monuments.

The terrorist grouping has done a lot of harm, irreparable in many ways, to the cultural heritage of the regions it used to occupy. The UN Security Council has taken the resolution the first in its history directed at protection of the cultural heritage last year. The document approved under conditions of ruining the historical monuments in Iraq, Syria and other states involved in conflicts, contains a range of recommendations on such crimes’ prevention.
