UK culture and heritage organisations send packing crates, conservation and packing materials and collections documentation equipment to Ukraine
Following Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022, sector colleagues and organisations across the world mobilised to practically help their colleagues in Ukraine. Very often the support for Ukrainian museums and staff has been coordinated collaboratively with support of ICOM National Committees. The UK response began with the UA-UK Cultural Heritage Initiative asking ICON (The Institute of Conservation) to set up a series of Basecamp teams to co-ordinate support efforts. Due to security restrictions, the logistics and specific details of the support provided needs to be kept confidential.
