The status of the center of Odessa as a UNESCO site will be decided at the beginning of next year
This will be an extraordinary session of UNESCO member countries, and the nomination dossier is currently being studied in Paris. Mykola Viknyanskyi, the head of the working group on the inclusion of the city of Odesa in the UNESCO world heritage list, told about this during a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine — Odesa.

If the status of the historical center of Odesa is voted, within 30 days after the session the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine must take the objects of historical heritage under its protection. “A management structure will be created that will monitor what the owner of this or that object must do to preserve it, and a methodology for evaluating the owner’s actions will be developed,” Mykola Viknianskyi said.
