The MCIP continues to record damage of objects of cultural infrastructure in Ukraine because of russian aggression. Thus, as of February 25, 2023, 1,322 objects of cultural infrastructure have been damaged, excluding cultural heritage sites. Almost a third of them are destroyed (505 objects).
At the same time, over the past month, the total number of affected objects of cultural infrastructure has increased by 51 objects, most of which are in Donetsk region (33 objects or 65%) and Kharkiv region (9 objects or 18%).
In general, cultural infrastructure received the greatest losses and damages in Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kyiv, Kherson, Mykolaiv and Luhansk regions.
Creative hubs, libraries, museums, theaters, philharmonic halls, art education institutions (art schools and colleges) were damaged and destroyed on the territory of 199 ACs (amalgamated communities) (13.5%) in Vinnytsia (2%), Dnipropetrovsk (13%), Donetsk (85%), Zhytomyr (12%), Zakarpattia (2%), Zaporizhzhia (27%), Kyiv (27%), Luhansk (42%) Mykolaiv (42%), Odesa (3%), Sumy (41%), Kharkiv (36%), Kherson (29%), Khmelnytskyi (2%), Cherkasy (3%), Chernihiv (14%) regions and the city of Kyiv.

The largest group of cultural infrastructure objects that suffered damage or destruction are creative hubs - 47% of the total number of institutions of cultural infrastructure that were affected.

Because of this, it is impossible to count the exact number of objects of cultural infrastructure damaged during hostilities and occupation.
