The subject of the research is the Internet archiving technology that enables the identification and preservation of Ukraine’s cultural heritage during the armed conflict. This conflict began on February 24, 2022, with the attack of Russian troops on Ukraine. As a result of these military operations, the digital resources of cultural institutions in Ukraine have been partially destroyed and are still threatened with destruction.
The research was conducted using desk research and case study methods, as well as focusing on the digital resources of the Ukrainian state. The Internet archiving project, Internet Archive, is also discussed. The activities of the scientific community dealing with Internet archiving are presented. SUCHO (Saving Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Online) is identified and described, and archived websites and digital resources of Ukraine’s cultural heritage have also been reviewed. These activities were carried out independently of international arrangements and in an ad hoc manner with the aim of securing digital resources of cultural heritage. Subsequently, activities will be carried out to identify and settle material losses in the form of objects and material infrastructure. This article presents the role and tasks of UNESCO and UNITAR as organizations in the use of satellite telemetry for the purposes of humanitarian aid, disasters, and conflicts.
