Friends, this is only a short newsflash.
Barely 36 hours after having posted my article about tourism in the Zone, information reaches me that the Zone now is closed. This was decided by the Ukrainian government on June 20th. Last week I heard something similar from a relatively uncertain source, but now it appears as a fact.
What does this mean?
It means that till further notice, there will be a ban including everyone from outside the Zone, with only a few exceptions (journalists, for example) and all this is said to be due to "reorganization" of the Exclusion Zone, and the ban is said to be due till October this year.
Currently, I don't know more than this, but as soon as I do, I'll let you know.
Over and out.
