An act of vandalism in Kyiv threatens historic plague graves

In Kyiv, Schekavytsya Hill, an ancient place with a thousands of years old history, is being destroyed by an unknown organization, that carries out construction there. It is also unknown, whether there are legal permits for this construction.

Here are the fotos and video of the construction.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that the hill contains mass graves of the victims of the 1770 plague. Here is the information from Ukrainian wikipedia about that plague, which killed more than 6000 people.

We ask the international community to join our protests and to put some pressure onto the Kyiv city government in order to stop this act of vandalism.
