PEN America-PEN Ukraine Report Studies the Damage Done to Ukraine's Cultural Heritage

Ayad Akhtar, president of PEN America, shares PEN America and PEN Ukraine’s new report, “Ukrainian Culture Under Attack: Erasure of Ukrainian Culture in Russia’s War Against Ukraine,” which provides “evidence of intentional and indiscriminate attacks on Ukraine’s cultural infrastructure, in cities and rural areas. The report is damning, undeniable evidence of a concerted campaign of erasure.”

Akhtar continues, “The report makes clear that culture is not collateral damage in the war against Ukraine: it’s a target, a central pillar of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s justification for the war. Putin has repeatedly claimed that Ukrainian culture and language simply don’t exist. By targeting art museums, music halls, libraries, theaters, and historical sites, he attempts to make it so.”
