Ukraine

Terrorism

There is a general threat from terrorism. The Ukrainian authorities have announced that they have disrupted a number of planned attacks, including in Kyiv. Attacks have mainly been aimed at official Ukrainian targets, but could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners.

British nationals haven’t been specifically targeted. You should remain vigilant and avoid large gatherings and demonstrations.

There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals, from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. You should be vigilant at this time.
