According to the Permanent Representative of Russia to UNESCO Eleonora Mitrofanova, the fund is planned to be financed from voluntary contributions by member countries.
- The UNESCO has created an Emergency Fund for Syria that will be financed from voluntary contributions by member countries, as well as the UNESCO’s extra-budgetary funds, said Mitrofanova as cited by "TASS."
According to Eleonora Mitrofanova, as of now the fund has around EUR 2.7 million. Four years of fighting have destroyed 300 archaeological monuments out of 10 thousand available in Syria.
As QHA reported earlier, the troops loyal to the regime of Bashar al-Assad have pushed back the "Islamic state" terrorists from the strategically important Syrian city of Palmyra, uniting the eastern part of the country with Damascus.
