Fastiv is a town with a population of about 45 thousand people, located in the western part of Kyiv Oblast, about 75 km from Kyiv.

The US Department of State has issued a Level 4: Do Not Travel Advisory for Ukraine, citing the war, the risk of shelling and missile attacks, and the widespread presence of landmines. Additionally, many tourist destinations and facilities are damaged or closed, and essential services may be disrupted.
