Consulate in Ukraine warns travellers

Hungary’s consulate general in Uzhgorod is warning tourist groups bound for Ukraine to be extra cautious and circumspect of attacks on foreign tourist buses.

“In view of the fact that unidentified persons have damaged foreign tourist buses several times recently in the Western Ukrainian region, we are asking bus travel organisers to notify us in advance in an e-mail at the consulate general so that we would know about their stay in the region,” the consulate said in a call on its Facebook page on Tuesday.

An explosive device was activated recently under a Polish tourist bus at a provincial hotel in Lviv county, causing major damage to the bus.
