National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Når du rejser til Ukraine, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed pga. risikoen for terror. De fleste danskere har dog ingen problemer under besøg i landet.  Vi fraråder alle rejser til regionerne Donetsk og Luhansk i det østlige Ukraine. Der har været væbnet konflikt siden foråret 2014. Vi fraråder alle rejser til Krim-halvøen, som er under russisk kontrol i strid med international ret. I november 2018 fandt et sammenstød sted mellem den russiske kystvagt og den ukrainske flåde i Sortehavet ud for Krim. Bemærk, at det iflg. ukrainsk lovgivning er ulovligt at rejse til Krim uden tilladelse fra de ukrainske myndigheder. Du risikerer at blive straffet med bøde, fængsling, udvisning eller indrejseforbud til Ukraine. Hvis du rejser til Donetsk, Luhansk eller Krim-halvøen, har ambassaden meget begrænsede muligheder for at hjælpe dig, hvis du kommer i en nødsituation.

Danger level: 3
