Two of three illegal migrants want to get from Transcarpathia only to Slovakia


On October 16, a service meeting of Chop Border Detachment was hold aiming at summing up its activity in the course of 9 months of the current year.

The participants of the meeting were representatives of Western Regional Department, governing body and officers of border detail as well as the chiefs of border sub-divisions realizing direct security of the border in the limits of Uzhgorod, Perechyn and Velykyi Bereznyi regions.

As the reporters have marked, the security of the border in the area of Chop Detachment is conducted in the conditions of rather tension conditions as to the flow of illegal migrants. If comparing the dynamics in the areas of other border detachments securing the border with EU states, so 65% “travelers” are apprehended namely by Chop border guards in the approaches to Slovakia. However, if taking into account the results of operatives and service actions, so it becomes clear that the activity of Chop border guards provides successful counteraction not only to illegal migrants.

While conducting passport control, the inspectors detected 12 forged documents, 11 another’s one and 238 invalid passport documents. 850 persons were called to administrative responsibility, who were fined for 150 000 UAH.
