UNESCO needed more than ever now - envoy
The organization is especially needed in conflict-torn regions like Africa where historical sites are under the threat of destruction.
The diplomat added that UNESCO saw certain troubles itself due to cuts of US funding but Russia helped a lot providing money to restore Orthodox Churches in Kosovo.
In 2013, another two Russian sites will be added to the World Heritage list – the town of Bolgar and the island of Sviyazhsk.
