Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk instructed officials to apply to UNESCO in case of destruction of the house where Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko had lived in Orenburg, Russia. He stated this during the Cabinet of Ministers meeting.

Earlier G7 Ambassadors discussed government future with Yatsenyuk 

"I ask the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with the Ministry of Culture to send a note to the Russian Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Culture and also to inform UNESCO and other international organizations about the destruction of cultural monument. This is unacceptable. Our international partners know what Russia’s face looks like and here is another confirmation.", - said Yatsenyuk.

Russian media reported that referred house is already razed to the ground, and now there is a parking place.
