On May 6, officers of the Vyshhorod District Police Department together with employees of the State Border Guard Service found 5 groups of extreme tourists in the exclusion zone. All of them entered the Chernobyl zone illegally, bypassing checkpoints.
In the resettled city of Pripyat police found 3 groups of visitors. Six tourists aged 17 to 31 came to the restricted area from the capital and Kyiv region, three – 22, 23 and 30-year-old residents of Poltava region, two more – 38- and 32-year-old residents of Vinnytsia.
In addition, near the Chornobyl-2 facility, law enforcement officers documented three young men from the capital, Kyiv and Poltava regions, aged 20 to 21, and two other Poltava residents aged 21 and 22 “traveled” in the village of Dibrova.
With regard to all violators, the police drew up reports under Art. 46-1 (Violation of the requirements of the radiation safety regime in areas that have been radioactively contaminated) of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses. Administrative materials were sent to the court for a decision.
