Only 1% of manuscripts has left since the time of Kievan Rus’. We are getting them back to historical homeland.

In 2009 the Gorobets Publishers started off the project which in called “Returning the Cultural Heritage to Ukraine”. With a help of facsimile-type publications, this project is aimed at making medieval manuscripts, which are outside of Ukraine, available not only to scientists but also to everyone who is interested in history, culture and language of our state.
