Activists organized a public space in the "House with insects"

In the landmark "House with Insects", which the developer tried to demolish, Kyiv activists organized public space and are restoring order.

About this reports the activist Dmytro Perov.

"Now the architectural monument, which the developer wanted to demolish, will function as a public space with benches, coffee and a good mood. While we put two rooms in order, there are still 12 left," Dmytro says.

Activists are renovating the 1893 monument at their own expense. Their presence will help to avoid repeated encroachments by the developer.

We will remind you that the former outbuilding of Maria Stanislavska, or the "House with insects", began to be dismantled due to the construction of a house next door in 2021.

Construction works in the spring of this year renewed, which shook society and caused a flurry of discontent. In turn, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy condemned these actions and called on the Kyiv City Military Administration to submit documents for entering the building into the State Register of Immovable Monuments.

As a result National Police of Ukraine opened criminal proceedings on the fact of intentional damage or destruction of objects of cultural heritage.
