WASHINGTON, January 6. /TASS/. The US authorities have extended recommendations against all travel by citizens to eastern Ukraine, the US Department of State said on Monday.
“Despite the signing of a ceasefire agreement in September 2014, violent clashes between Russia-backed separatists and Ukrainian forces continue in parts of the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, resulting in thousands of injuries and deaths,” the US State Department said.
The State Department also recommends citizens from travelling to the Republic of Crimea, the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, and exercise caution in Zaporozhye, the Odessa, Kharkov and Kherson regions.
