Thanks for asking, but please, read my first post on this thread. I left Chernihiv in early January. I get info on Chernihiv from its city council website and from some people I know in the city.

I have not heard of the destruction of the 2 WH-nominated churches in Chernihiv. The city council website, which had daily info on which supermarkets are still open, has not been updated since March 10, but my landlord in Chernihiv has been sending me some horrendous photos and videos.

What's so good about WHS when they can't be visited? The main hotel in the city, Hotel Ukraine, on the central intersection (and right next to my former dacha) of Chernihiv, where almost all first time visitors to Chernihiv stay, has been destructed "beautifully." The large and symmetrical hotel, where rooms that would cost 250 USD in LA cost 25 USD, has been bombed big in the middle, meaning it is still standing symmetrically.

I just thought this war might as well create a few more WHSs in Ukraine, in the vein of Hiroshima's Genbaku Dome.

Could Ukraine apply for an Emergency nomination for the Historic Center of the Port City of Odessa?

In 2016, there was a report (posted in "sites attempting inscription soon") of a nomination file being developed for Odessa and a goal for inscription as soon as 2018. This obviously never occurred, but one wonders what progress was made? What requirements were met, documentation/maps produced, or management plans completed, etc?

https://slovo.odessa.ua/news/13662-odessa-yunesko-medlenno-no-verno.html

Odessa has been visited by 33 users on this website and has a 60% in favor of inscription (based on only 5 votes). Zoƫ Sheng gave a thumbs up, a notoriously tough reviewer that pulls no punches in commenting on a sites OUV. How reasonable (or effective) might this strategy be? If Ukraine could submit the file on a emergency candidature basis for Odessa, could it potentially be inscribed this Summer?

The mayor of Odessa: UNESCO gives a signal and admits us among the World Heritage Sites [Gennady Trukhanov, the mayor of the port city: "Entering the list could be the best defense against Russian attacks"]

"This is the appeal launched this morning by the mayor of Odessa , Gennady Trukhanov, meeting some international media. Responding to the ANSA agency, which asked him about the possible acceleration of the city's request to enter the UNESCO World Heritage list , Trukhanov confirmed that he had consulted the Ukrainian government about it and specified: " We are on the pre-list, our documentation was completed 2-3 years ago. It would be a great signal from Unesco."

They'd need to put it on the Tentative List first.

As it turns out unfortunately, both of the two main components of the TWHSs in Chernihiv, the Transfiguration Cathedral and the Borys and Gleb Cathedral, have been damaged / shelled in the conflict:

This city council page also has a photo of Hotel Ukraine that I mentioned earlier: Photo No 9.

As the Orthodox Easter (April 24) approaches, I'm surprised to hear that the Sviatohirsk Lavra, one of the only 4 Lavras in Ukraine, in the Donbas region was damaged by Russian shelling over the last weekend. It is a Russian Orthodox Monastery. I guess that's how badly Russian military is organized.

I had thought that if there was one place in Kyiv that would be spared by the Russian attack, it would be the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, a Russian Orthodox Monastery. But I am no longer certain.

This is the first time I've heard directly that Derzhprom has sustained damage.

"An assault on Kharkiv's Freedom Square in the first few days of the war rippled throughout the city's cultural center, damaging centuries-old buildings such as the 218-year-old Kharkiv National University, one of the country's most famous universities, the opera house and the Derzhprom state industry building, currently on a UNESCO "tentative" list for consideration as a World Heritage site."
