In Transcarpathian region, border guards detained three Vietnamese citizens who tried to illegally cross the border and a Ukrainian accompanying them. This was reported by the press service of the Western Regional Directorate of the State Border Guard Service.
Additional patrols and reserves were engaged for the apprehension of the illegal migrants. During the detention, the border guards made several warning shots in the air.
