Ukraine's Culture Ministry initiates 'Ukrainian Donbas' project
Ukraine's Culture Ministry on December 30, 2015, issued resolution No. 1126, having launched a national Ukrainian project entitled 'Ukrainian Donbas,' which is aimed at cultural integration, the ministry's official website said on Monday.
The project is designed to create conditions for the full-fledged integration of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in one Ukrainian cultural space through interregional cultural partnership. "The implementation of the project suggests events involving arts, museums, libraries, and other cultural spheres in the cities, towns and villages of Donbas with the participation of creative groups from various regions of Ukraine during one year," the Culture Ministry said.
The resolution defines the system of interaction between separate regions and specific districts and cities of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. This system has been developed as a result of meetings among heads of structural departments in regional administrations and Kyiv city state administration in the field of culture.
The resolution provides that in 2016 all the cultural establishments subordinate to the Culture Ministry are scheduled to visit Donetsk and Luhansk regions with their creative projects.
