The Museum of the Revolution of Dignity is still unable to post anywhere after the refusal of the Verkhovna Rada to agree to his placement in the «October Palace» in Kiev.
This was stated by the Minister of culture Vyacheslav Kyrylenko during the «government hour» in Parliament, answering questions of deputies, reports «Ukrainian truth».
«On 18 November, the government approved the decision on establishment of the memorial complex of Heroes of the Heavenly hundred – the Museum of dignity… We have provided 5 million UAH in the budget this year for the activities of the Ukrainian Institute of national remembrance and the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity. We could still directly financed from the state budget this place, as it can (to do) only if the institution has a national status,» he said.
«25 March the government approved the draft presidential decree on granting the status to the national Museum of the Revolution of Dignity. President, I think, in the near future will sign the corresponding decree – and these funds will go to the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity and all necessary organizational measures», — said Kirilenko.
However, the unresolved question of the location of the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity.
«A year ago the Prime Minister (Arseniy) Yatsenyuk and then submitted the bill to place in the premises of the so-called «October Palace» the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity. I think it is a good idea. By the way, «the October Palace» is the only building located at the address «street of the Heavenly hundred Heroes, the alley of Heroes Heavenly hundred, 1,» — said Kirilenko.
«But the Parliament did not support this initiative. And now the question is locked. Does not agree because the Ukrainian house on request from the Institute of national memory to provide a portion of its premises to accommodate part of the exhibition», — he added.
According to Kirilenko, was also not resolved the question of the construction site in the alley of Heroes Heavenly hundreds, 3-5.
«This is where you need to build a new memorial for the Dignity and Museum of the Revolution of Dignity. The plot for the courts – and I personally have great doubts that in the nearest future there is possible to build a new Museum,» the Minister said.
«So we need to continue (discussing) – and to decide, either we have a Museum on the territory of «Ukrainian house», or come back to it on the territory of «the October Palace» that occurred the events of the Revolution of Dignity», he said.
Recall that in November 2014 the Director of the Department of urban planning and architecture of Kyiv city state administration (KCSA), the chief architect of Kiev Sergey Tselovalnik said several units of the Museum of Maidan: Ukrainian house, the House of trade unions, the territory near the October Palace, the building of Ukrcoopspilka.
