State Border Guard Service continues undertaking measures to prevent illegal crossing of the state border of Ukraine within the frames of counteraction to illegal migration. Thus, the border guards of BS “Pavlovychi”, Lvivskyi Detachment, detained a citizen of Turkey near the border, who tried to cross the state border of Ukraine on Poland illegally. Local residents assisted in identification of the trespassers informing the law enforcers about an unknown person moving towards the border. The man had documents proving his identity; he told the border guards that he was going to get one of the EU countries. Currently, the violator is delivered to the Department of Border Guard Service to establish the circumstances of the offense and drawing up the relevant procedural documents.
