    On June 21, 2022, the Head of the State Archival Service of Ukraine visited the State Archive of Lviv Region. 

    Anatolii Khromov had a meeting with the director of the archive — Iryna Martens, to discuss the archive work in war conditions.  

    In connection with the large-scale invasion of russian troops on the territory of Ukraine, users’ access to the reading room is temporarily limited. In all other aspects, the archive team did not change the format of its activities during this period. Based on the real threat of loss of historical and cultural heritage, the State Archive of the Lviv Region accelerated the pace of creating digitized copies of documents.     

    In addition, work on proactive documentation of the russian-Ukrainian war has started, as evidenced by the presentation of the exhibition on this subject. 

    The State Archive of the Lviv Region actively supports the initiatives of the local authorities to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Weaving camouflage nets, donating blood to wounded soldiers, and other matters in which archive workers are involved — have become the norm in their daily work.

    As part of the working visit of the Head of the State Archival Service of Ukraine, Anatolii Khromov, another important segment was initiated: the signing of an agreement on the digitization of archival documents with the American corporation FamilySearch International, which will give new boost to this priority direction of the archive’s activities.
