7 illegal migrants from Africa were detained in Transcarpathia


Unfamiliar persons directing to the border by car were notices by the inspectors of SMVI (State Motor Vehicle Inspectorate), who informed border guards about this. Driver seeing that he was chased, left the car together with passengers and started to run away. Five men of African appearance did not have any identifying documents. However, they confessed at once that they arrived to Ukraine from far away Africa (4 persons from Somalia and one from Eritrea) in order then to get to the countries of Western Europe.

Two more Somalis were caught by the border guards of Chop Detachment in the area of responsible department “Velykyi Bereznyi”. The trespassers were detected with the help of thermal imager. After receiving information from Ukrainian side, Slovakian border guards apprehended two more violators from Somalia.

Decision about responsibility before the law and their further destiny will be decided by the court.
