On Friday October 7, under the guidance of the governor of Transcarpathia O.Ledyda a meeting was held concerning the counteraction to violations of the border in the frames of the region. He affirmed that the number of detained illegal migrants in Transcarpathia decreased in 2,5 times, and the number of attempts of illegal cross of the border – in 3,5 times.
The participators of the meeting were the head of Western Regional Administration of State Border Service of Ukraine, Arthur Gorbenko, the regional prosecutor Anatoliy Petrunya, the head of SSU in Transcarpathian region Vasyliy Sytar, the head of Regional Administration of Migration Service Yuriy Tovt.
As it was reported by the head of Western Regional Administration of State Border Service of Ukraine, Arthur Gorbenko, in the course of some last years a positive tendency is observed in decrease of the number of unlawful actions at the border, particularly in Transcarpathian region.
Thus, the number of detained illegal migrants lessened in 2,5 time, the number of attempts of illegal cross of the border – in 3,5 time. Altogether, border guards are worried by the activization of the channels of illegal migration. Just during the last week border guards detained 23 illegal migrants, and two criminal cases were commenced. Despite, such activization of channels of illegal migration is seasonal, so border guards marked the necessity of efforts unification of all law enforcement structures for counteraction to violations at the border.
Separately was raised the question on reasonability of presence of THF for foreigners in Transcarpathia – in Perechyn and Mukachevo districts. Border guards regard the placement is intolerable as Transcarpathian region borders on four governments. Consequently, so close to border accommodation of people who most of all wish to get to Europe is as minimum illogic. Thus, just for 10 days of September, three groups of foreigners disappeared from Perechyn THF – all of them tried to cross the border illegally.
