The Ukrainian traditional national soup, borscht, has been included in the UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding, Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzheppar tweeted on July 1.

According to a UNESCO's press release on July 1, the culture of Ukrainian borscht cooking was inscribed on UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding by the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, composed of representatives of the States Parties to the UNESCO Convention.

"The inclusion of the culture of Ukrainian borscht cooking is not only an important step in preserving the identity of our Ukrainian nation, rich in cultural traditions and customs, but also extraordinary support for all Ukrainians who are now protecting our land from Russian invaders," the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to UNESCO said.

Ukraine applied for the inclusion of borscht in the UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in the spring of 2021. The list already includes Ukrainian Petrykivka decorative painting, the tradition of Kosiv painted ceramics, as well as Cossack's songs of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.
