I recommend anyone who didn't see it live, to view the recorded Livecast of today's session which is available already on https://whc.unesco.org/en/sessions/18EXTCOM
If the never ending procedural disputes of the morning are not of interest then go directly to 3hrs 48 minutes in and watch a VERY powerful 30 minutes from the moment the vote granting inscription to Odesa is announced. It is best seen "live" to get a feel for the tensions......Amazing comments within a "diplomatic" environment.....
A few quotes....
Russia "We witness the funeral of the World Heritage Convention". The Rep sings a song about lovely Odesa.
Poland - "on behalf of Group 2 we do NOT consider ourselves as being represented by Russia on the Bureau"
UK - "The imposition of Russia as a Bureau member......dismayed at the undermining of the Convention"
Russia - "Not up to UK to teach lessons to anyone else after their bombing of Syria, Iraq......"
Spain - "Universal shame" of the last 2 days
Lithuania - "I have never seen in my 20 years as a diplomat....regret"
Germany - "The Tortured state of Ukraine......."
Russia - "Reject all allegations against my country by NATO states which bombed....."
