On July 28, an anonymous message about "mining of the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant" was received causing closure of the Chornobyl zone's checkpoints, a member of the public council of the State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management Yaroslav Emelianenko posted on Facebook.
The security measures are being worked out, all the checkpoints of the Chernobyl zone are closed at the entrance. This slowed down the work of the enterprises of the Chernobyl zone, Emelianenko wrote.
According to him, hundreds of tourists are forced to wait for the completion of the security measures.
"Usually this is how stalkers amused themselves," Emelianenko added.
He also noted that this is not the first notification of such kind, usually they are just fakes.
