St. PETERSBURG, June 2. /TASS/. Syrian government has several proposals for restoration of historic monuments in Palmyra that sustained damage during an almost year-long control of the area by the Islamic State militants and the State Hermitage Museum is pondering the assistance it could possibly offer in the restoration project, the museum’s Director General, Dr. Mikhail Piotrovsky said on Wednesday.
"There are concrete proposals from the Syrian government," he said. "We’re discussing now how we could possibly help them."
He said earlier the State Hermitage Museum is ready to take part in the restoration of sculptures and the reinforcing of the monuments that survived the Islamic State’s fierce mistreatment.
"The museum will take part in all the works that will be offered - from taking photos of the area to reinforcement of the monuments, restoration of sculptures and so on," he said.
