Vyshhorod police found a man trying to remove elk horns from the Chernobyl Zone.
At one of the checkpoints in the zone of radioactive contamination of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, employees of the police department №1 of the Vyshgorod RUP, during a search of a car found elk horns.
A 59-year-old resident of the town of Slavutych tried to take the horns out of the unconditional resettlement without the permission and dosimetric control provided by law.
According to this fact, investigators opened a criminal case under Part 1 of Art. 267-1 (Violation of the requirements of the radiation safety regime) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The sanction of the article provides for a fine or restriction of liberty for a term of one to three years, or imprisonment for the same term.
