11 citizens of Somalia were detained by the border guards of BS “Guta”, Transcarpathian region. Men of African appearance were detected by the border detail in the morning during the monitoring Ukrainian-Slovakian border with help of service dog Astei. 10 unfamiliar persons did not get the border line and they were detained400 m before it. Seeing border guards, violators tried to scamper away, but the warning shoots up stopped them anyway. Inspecting the adjacent area, the law enforcement agents detected soon one more trespasser, who intended to hide.  All of them were citizens of Somalia who were trying to get to EU countries in the search of better life. Now, detainees are in the detention centre of Chop Border Detachment and their further destiny will be decided by the court.

Another group of seekers of better destiny were apprehended by the border guards of the same department. They were 5 citizens of Georgia. Men were noticed with the help of mobile thermal imager. Detainees of 34-39 years old reported that they made their way to the countries of Western Europe. They decided to reach the state border on foot orienting on the map. However, they got lost and they spent much time in unfamiliar mountainous area.
