It is thanks to Ukrainian books that children who left Ukraine because of Russian aggression keep in touch with their motherland. Now the “Ukrainian bookshelves” project is supported by more than 10 European countries

This was written by the Minister of Culture and Information Policy Alexander Tkachenko in facebookreports Ukrinform.

“Children who were forced to leave Ukraine because of Russian aggression must be connected to their motherland. It is through Ukrainian books that children maintain this connection. And we are doing everything we can to spread our book projects all over the world. Project Books Without Borders ” 160,000 copies of children’s books have already been published for Ukrainian refugee children,” Tkachenko wrote.

He also noted that more than 10 European countries have already supported the Ukrainian Bookshelves project. In addition, there is an action “Ukrainian children – Ukrainian book.” As part of this, domestic publishers have already transferred about 1 million copies. The aim of the campaign is to provide displaced children with textbooks, educational materials and fiction free of charge.

“Let the children immerse themselves in the world of books, and at least for now forget that they are not at home, where there is war,” the minister added.

As reported, Kazakhstan and Japan have also joined the “Books Without Borders” project.

The “Books Without Borders” project is being carried out under the patronage of First Lady Olena Zelenska, together with the ICIP, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ukrainian Book Institute.

As part of the project, each foreign society can independently fundraise and print books according to the layouts provided by Ukrainian publishers, or purchase finished books from Ukrainian distributors.
