'Chernobyl' writer urges visitors to respect the tragedy occurred at power plant

Chernobyl is becoming a visitor hotspot because of a new HBO series

The nuclear plant and the abandoned town that neighbours it in Ukraine have witnessed a spike in visitors since the drama, made by HBO, aired in May to rave reviews. "Comport yourselves with respect for all who suffered and sacrificed", he added.

He tweeted on Wednesday: "It's wonderful that #ChernobylHBO has inspired a wave of tourism to the Zone of Exclusion".

While travelers are permitted to visit Chernobyl with a guide, there is no official Ukrainian law in place authorizing tourism in the exclusion zone.

Craig Mazin, the screenwriter and creator of HBO's Chernobyl, has responded to reports that "influencers" have been flocking to the doomed nuclear power plant in Ukraine to share inappropriate photos from the tragic location.

Many users have taken to Instagram to comment on the bloggers' and influencers' photos, criticising them for being "insensitive", "disrespectful", and "dumb".

TMZ also shared footage of Gooding dancing and singing at the Magic Hour on the night of the alleged incident. The actor told TMZ that he was at the bar partying with friends but didn't touch anyone.

To be specific, having seen an nearly uninterrupted viewership climb from its May 6 debut to its sou l crushing June 3 finale, the widely acclaimed Craig Mazin-created historical drama has emerged with a cumulative audience of 8 million so far.

Tour companies have observed a 40 % increase in the booking since the airing of the series on HBO and Sky Atlantic in May. It isn't safe to live there, but by signing up for a tour you can visit the area surrounding the power plant. Once inside the exclusion zone, adventurers can explore the town of Pripyat, which was abruptly evacuated in 1986; stand under the Ferris wheel at the abandoned amusement park, and see the infamous nuclear reactor (safely enclosed in a steel structure to contain radiation) from an observation point 1000 feet away.

A deadly explosion happened at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986 which caused almost 4000 deaths from the exposure to hazardous nuclear radiations, reported by WHO. Up to 115,000 people are thought to have died of radiation-related illnesses such as cancer, though estimates vary.

Although the visitors don't need to wear hazmat suits anymore; they must undergo military passport checks before entering the site and are also strictly warned not to touch anything.
