Cemetery in Borodianka after construction
Cemetery in Borodianka before construction

ESJF surveyors visiting the cemetery at Borodianka in March, 2015 found wide scale and recent desecration at the site with large trees chopped down and lying on graves. An immediate police complaint for vandalism was filed and a meeting sought with the mayor. Planning permission to save the site was granted by the local authority with a specific demand that the cemetery be strongly fenced up to a height of almost three meters.
