Tourism companies in Ukraine offer trips to war torn areas
Tourism companies in Ukraine are offering trips to the war torn Eastern part of the country wherein tourists can visit the area for 50 pounds.
Some commentators said that war was not something that should be taken advantage of and called these trips as bizarre.
According to the Daily Star, tourism officials are providing free flak jackets to travellers who would be driven around in armoured vehicles.
Advertisements say that visitors can see low risk areas, exploded vehicles, destroyed bridges and bombed-out vehicles.
The ads can be seen around tourism areas and in neighbouring countries as well.
Visitors who toured the areas have picked up souvenirs like bullet cases and blackened rubble.
