Illegal migrants from Russia and Moldova were detained in Transcarpathia


During the last days, border guards of BS “Uzhgorod” detained 1 citizen of Georgia intended to get to one of the countries of Western Europe through the territory of Transcarpathia. As it was established, he got legally territory of Ukraine through the check point for air service “Boryspil” already in February of the current year and during all this period he lived in Kyiv. According to his explanations, he chose Ukrainian-Slovakian border because he was waited by his countryman in Slovakia who crossed the border legally and with whom he had to continue his trip along the territory of EU.

At night, while the border guards of BS “Palad Komarivtsi” carried out the searching actions they detained one citizen of Republic of Moldova, who was seeking better life in one of the countries of Western Europe. But his plans were not realized.

At present moment, the administrative-procedural and checking measures are carried out in both cases. The punishment and further destiny of the persons will be decided by the court for the attempt to cross the state border of Ukraine illegally.
