Russia: Lavrov confirms humanitarian aid convoy to be sent to Ukraine
The icon was illegally removed from the territory of Donbass, controlled by the pro-Russian separatists
The icon of the 18th century from Lugansk, which was presented by the chairman of the Presidium of Bosnia and Herzegovina Milorad Dodik to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov, will be returned by the Russian side to the donors. This was announced by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The reason for the return was a demand from the Ukrainian authorities.
According to Srna, the 300-year-old gilded icon found in Luhansk was presented to Lavrov during his visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina on December 14. On its reverse side there is an imprint: “URSR. People’s Committee for Education. Ukrnauka. Odessa Regional Commission “. A few days later, the Ukrainian embassy sent a question to Sarajevo about how the country’s authorities ended up with an item of Ukrainian cultural heritage, illegally exported from the territory controlled by pro-Russian separatists..
Bosnia and Herzegovina Foreign Minister Bissera Turkovic promised to seek the return of the icon to Ukraine in accordance with her request. On Friday, the prosecutor’s office of Bosnia and Herzegovina opened a case and began checking the origin of this work of art. Interpol is expected to participate in the investigation.
