President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy launched an international flashmob of video greetings on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of UNESCO, which aims to draw attention to the activities of the organization and support its values.
In his greetings, the President noted that UNESCO was established immediately after the end of the most devastating war in human history and was aimed at rooting the idea of protecting peace.
"We, Ukrainians, understand well the wisdom of these words from the UNESCO Charter. We suffered huge losses in that war. And now we are defending our freedom. We appreciate and support the important mission of UNESCO. UNESCO has a unique role to play in protecting world heritage so that we can pass it on to future generations. Ukraine is proud of the sites and places included in the World Heritage List," the President stressed.
He expressed hope that the list would grow.
The President noted that UNESCO's strength also lies in its ability to find adequate answers to difficult challenges, and Ukraine is ready to work actively with other member states to achieve goals.
The international flashmob of video greetings was initiated with the participation of the National Commission for UNESCO in Ukraine.
Ukraine invites all UNESCO member states to support the flashmob and publish videos on official channels and social networks about the importance of the organization for each state.
