Ukrainian Ruins Recognized

WASHINGTON — Two decades of research by a Texas-based archaeology professor has led to an ancient Greek city located in Ukraine being designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, according to an announcement on the University of Texas website.

Joseph Carter, professor of classical archaeology and the director of the Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICA) at the University of Texas at Austin began his excavations of the fifth century B.C. port city of Chersonesos in 1994, the website stated.

Carter's group from the university was the first foreign team to be given access to the site, which is close to the port city of Sevastopol.

"Chersonesos commands our respect because of its very important place in world history, as the birthplace of democracy in this part of the world and of Christianity in the Slavic world," Carter said. "Few places on Earth have such a long and vital history."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
