The number of illegal stalkers arrested in Chernobyl this year has exceeded 400

Chernobyl police have found more than four hundred illegal stalkers in the exclusion zone since the beginning of the year.

408 violators, 8-foreigners, illegally entered the territory of the exclusion zone, without permits or passing through checkpoints. Chernobyl police officers discovered them during the regular patrols of the radiation exclusion zone.

In particular, the other day during the service of the Chernobyl zone police discovered another tourists-illegals near the detached city of Pripyat. Kyiv residents illegally infiltrated the forbidden zone in search of extreme tourism.

The materials of administrative cases are sent to court for decision making.
