The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all unnecessary travel to Ukraine due to the tense and unpredictable situation in the country.

“The situation in Ukraine may change at very short notice,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned in a press release on Monday.

Ever since 2014, travel to and stays in the counties of Donetsk and Luhansk and the occupied Crimean peninsula have been discouraged. Now, this advice is extended to all trips to the whole of Ukraine that are not strictly necessary.

“If you choose to travel to Ukraine now, we encourage you to make thorough assessments of your own safety and contact your insurance company to ensure that you have valid travel insurance,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted.

In recent weeks, tensions have risen sharply on the Ukrainian-Russian border, and many experts fear a military conflict could take place.

  1. So the Russians’ threat of war … if we don’t finally – sensibly – give them the fair and comprehensive peace and security treaty they need, especially after our broken promises to them … is credible.
    Yesterday in Norwegian media, Forsvarets HøgSkole’s Colonel Palle Ydstebø pointed out the Russian flanking move into Belarus threatening an attack on Ukraine from the north as well as east and (from the Crimea) south (which I had been expecting for some months, myself) greatly magnifies the Russians’ threat.

    “Meanwhile, back at the ranch,” civil defense?/sivillforsvars??
