The paper deals with a boundary control problem for the Maxwell dynamical system in a bounbed domain Ω ⊂ R3. Let ΩT ⊂ Ω be the subdomain filled by waves at the moment T, T* the moment at which the waves fill the whole of Ω. The following effect occurs: for small enough T the system is approximately controllable in ΩT whereas for larger T < T* a lack of controllability is possible. The subspace of unreachable states is of finite dimension determined by topological characteristics of ΩT.
