Russia Lost 40 Cultural Heritage Sites within a Year

In 2012 Russia lost 40 cultural heritage sites, including 31 architectural and 9 archaeological monuments.

      It made five sites more as compared to 2011.

      At the same time, according to the director of the Department of Cultural Heritage Control, Supervision and Licensing of the RF Culture Ministry Vladimir Tsvetnov, the number of cultural heritage sites with good or satisfactory condition has increased up to 54 per cent from 35 per cent of the previous year.

      As estimated by experts, presently in the territory of the Russian Federation there are about 140 thousand history and culture monuments, with 25 thousand of them being of federal value, and 13 registered on the list of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
