Historic Center of the Port City of Odessa (Ukraine)

I don't know how the article arrived at this figure -
"As of the 2015 World Heritage List - 1031 the object of which 802 are cultural, 197 - natural and 32 - mixed.
19 of them are in Ukraine - it is 1.8% of all objects from the list of World Heritage.
"

Ukraine actually has 7 WHS (including Cherchonese in the Crimea). If they have also counted Ukraine's T List sites then that stands at 14 plus 2 extensions (Kiev and Beech Forests). Interestingly at least 4 of these 14 are situated in occupied Crimea!!
a. "Trading Posts and Fortifications on Genoese Trade Routes. From the Mediterranean to the Black Sea" - Port of Sudak
b. "The historical surroundings of Crimean Khans' capital in Bakhchysarai". 2012 T List, put forward 2014 and 15 but "incomplete and not examined"
c. "Cultural Landscape of "Cave Towns" of the Crimean Gothia"
d. "Bagçesaray Palace of the Crimean Khans" - seems to be on Ukraine's T List twice!! This version was added in 2003 and should presumably have been removed when the 2012 T list addition was made

So, at a push, removal of the dual counting of Bagçesaray reduces the T list to 13 new + 7 existing = still 20 i.e 1 more than the article.
BUT !!!
I then see that one of the T List entries is "Mykolayiv Astronomical Observatory" added in 2007 but presumably superseded by "Astronomical Observatories of Ukraine" added in 2008 which includes Mykolayiv!! So remove another duplicate and Ukraine's T List comes down to 12 new (of which 3 are in the Crimea!) added to the existing 7 = 19!!
So that could have been how the article arrived at 19?? But still wrong of course on the %age. A coincidence I suspect!

Another "point of comment" which I have noticed about Ukraine's T List is that, although the "Trading Posts and Fortifications on Genoese Trade Routes. From the Mediterranean to the Black Sea" is presented as if it is to be a transnational nomination ( e.g the entry on the UNESCO web site for Ukraine states - "DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPONENTS WITHIN UKRAINE" I can't actually find ANY other country which has it (or even has had it in the past - though I may have missed something) on their T List!!

Pimachiowin Aki (Canada) is aiming at another attempt until 2019.

This article is from July? I did not see any indication of 2019. Maybe I missed something?

Sharjah (UAE)

Assif:
Suakin (Sudan)

Thanks Assif! The article below highlights the aspirations of the newly named nomination, Sharjah: the Gate to Trucial States and the Island of Suakin, which could potentially have been submitted for 2018! However, its more likely these nominations will be coming along in 2019 or 2020. Still no specific dates at this point.

Assif:
El Abraj (Kuwait)

Kuwait Towers have also been discussed just before the official 2018 deadline. Hard to say if this means a submitted dossier.

http://english.alarabiya.net/en/life-style/art-and-culture/2017/01/29/Bid-to-list-Kuw ait-Towers-as-World-Heritage-Site.html

Could these 3 nominations be the dark horse candidates for 2018?
- Sharjah: the Gate to Trucial States (UAE)
- Island of Suakin (Sudan)
- El Abraj (Kuwait)


Kuwait is currently on the world heritage committee until 2019.
