UNESCP 1954 Hague Convention

We are saddened and appalled by the current senseless conflict and tragic loss of life in Ukraine, and also horrified by the destruction of Cultural Property.  Russia is a signatory of the UNESCO 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.  Although Russia has a duty to uphold the Convention, it seems to have forgotten this in Syria & elsewhere too.
