“Eight extreme travelers are foreigners who legally arrived in
Ukraine, and others are from the [Ukrainian] capital, as well as
Donetsk, Kyiv, Mykolaiv and Chernihiv regions. Among the fans of exotic
trips were two women,” police said.
The media liaisons office noted that the extreme tourists were aged
between 17 and 36. They failed to get to Prypiat, as police detained
them near the fence.
“There were even pleased to fall into the hands of the police
officers. It’s only necessary to imagine the degree of danger posed to
people when they get to the zone: forest thickets, marshes, animals, and
the absence of mobile communications. After sustaining injuries during
this trip, the violators needed medical care. Employees of the police
battalion were the first to rescue the tourists, who were lost and
[suffering from] the high temperatures,” the regional police said.
