Watching Developments in Ukraine

With four weeks to go to my departure, I’m closely watching the developing situation in Ukraine. We are supposed to pass through Ukraine twice, on the way to and from Russia.

Since the new unity government was formed, the unrest in Kiev seems to have quietened but now attention is focussed on the east of the country and Crimea specifically. The fluid situation seems to change daily, so it is anyone’s guess how things might look next week or next month. At the moment, travel through the majority of Ukraine doesn’t seem to be impacted but the UK FCO is warning against travel to Crimea – https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/ukraine

We are still hopeful that we’ll be able to travel through Ukraine but, if the situation becomes dangerous, we have the option of changing the route and travelling through Lithuania and Latvia to enter Russia.
