Kyiv has refused from the construction of the Fresco Sofia residential compound in the buffer zone of the St. Sofia Cathedral of Kyiv as city mayor Leonid Chernovetsky signed a relevant decree, National radio reported.

According to NGO "Save Old Kyiv", the construction work at the site is fully stopped. The construction was accompanied by active protests of local residents. UNESCO threatened to withdraw the Saint Sofia Cathedral national reserve in Kyiv from the World Heritage LIST in August at its regular session.

The reason for such a decision could be the chaotic construction development around the monument. However, at the 34th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Brasilia, 25 July to 3 August, the Ukrainian delegation secured the confirmation of the status of Kyiv's St. Sofia Cathedral and Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra as the sites of cultural heritage of universal significance.
