Ukraine – Russia

Ukraine

Today, one more fact from “politics”. It also affects tourists, so I should mention it here.
When I was visiting Ukraine, Crimea was treated as a part of Ukraine (so I’ll show you in June, some places from the Crimean Peninsula).
Since 2014, Russia has controlled the region and claims that it’s a Russian territory. Ukraine and almost all other countries consider Crimea as Ukrainian.
I don’t want to write how difficult all situation is. Just as a tourist, be aware of problems you may face while entering Crimea; e.g., to enter Crimea (currently), you need a Russian visa. However, for Ukraine, it’s an illegal way of entering Ukrainian territory.
It’s all complicated…
