Today, early in the morning, the Russian artillery strikes have damaged the Art Museum in recently liberated Kherson, southern Ukraine. The building of the Kherson Art Museum was under reconstruction when Russia invaded Ukraine.
Although the Russian forces occupied Kherson within the first week of the invasion, the Russian-installed occupation regime did nothing to finish the reconstruction of the building during eight months of the Russian control over Kherson Oblast and its regional center, Kherson. When the Russian forces retreated from Kherson on November 11, they robbed the city’s Art Museum and Lore Museum. Now the Russian army destroys the building that it previously plundered.
