Illegal visitors to Chernobyl arrested on Christmas Day

Police in the Vyshhorod region found illegal extremist tourists in the exclusion zone

On December 25, while patrolling the territory of the Exclusion Zone, officers from the G1 Police Department (Chornobyl) of the Vyshhorod District Police Department found two young men.

18-year-old inhabitants of the city of Nikolaev got into the territory of the Chernobyl zone for the purpose of extreme tourism bypassing checkpoints.

Regarding violators, the police drew up reports under Art. 46-1 (Violation of the requirements of the radiation safety regime in areas subject to radioactive contamination) of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses.

Administrative materials were sent to the court for a decision.

Dear citizens! The police once again remind that the exclusion zone is a controlled territory, and therefore illegal tourism in this area is prohibited.
