State Border Service of Ukraine actively uses the latest hardware in protection of the state border. Thus, when checking the border line, the guards of Podilskyi Detachment by means of quadcopter «Phantom» found an unknown person, who tried to illegally cross the border. Immediately the border patrol arrived to the place and detained the violator. 37-year-old citizen of Moldova was detected, who, in this way, planned to return home. Administrative documents were prepared regarding the violator.
It should be noted that this is not the first case, when border guards apprehend trespasser using remotely piloted air systems. Only in 2016 25 such cases were fixed in the area of the Southern Regional Department of the State Border Guard Service.
