The National Museum of the Holodomor Genocide in Ukraine will be completed at the expense of the Government of Canada.  The Verkhovna Rada has adopted the relevant amendments to the Law "On Museums and Museum Affairs," the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy reports.


"The National Museum of the Holodomor Genocide will have a supervisory and expert council, which will include representatives of the diaspora and descendants of the Holodomor victims. These advisory bodies will also include representatives of professional and scientific groups. All of this will help the Museum to implement the best international practices in its work," the statement said. 


"This is another step towards opening the entire Holodomor Museum complex to visitors. The completion of the museum should become both a symbol of the invincibility of the Ukrainian people and a way to tell the world the truth about the crimes of the Kremlin. We are sincerely grateful to all our partners for their financial and expert support, as well as to MPs for their increased attention to this issue," said Rostyslav Karandieiev, Acting Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.  


Earlier this year, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the draft law. It takes into account the recommendations of Canadian partners to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Museum and modernise processes in the museum sector. The Government of Canada will also provide financial support for the construction of the museum's second phase in accordance with the agreements between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.


As The Gaze previously reported, the Czech Republic has launched a joint digitisation project with Ukraine to preserve Ukrainian culture. It involves the creation of a mobile digitisation centre housed in a mobile shipping container. The project aims to provide a portable and efficient solution for digitising various library documents and materials in different locations according to current needs. The mobile centre can be used in areas affected by tragedies and is open for use by government agencies, non-profit organisations, medical institutions, libraries or private companies that need to quickly and efficiently scan large volumes of documents, making them more accessible or protecting them from destruction.
