How to disable Gutenberg from WordPress 5.0 without a plugin?

Just a few days ago (on 06.12), WordPress version 5.0 was officially released.

One of the major changes to it is the new editor Gutenberg, and there were many expert reviews that replacing the current WordPress editor with Gutenberg would have led to a number of problems, recommending not to be in a hurry to update the sites to version 5.0 on WP.

In the short run, a number of plug-ins have also emerged that allow users to exclude the new text editor Gutenberg and return the old one.
