A 16-year-old Afghan man who was trying to enter Ukraine illegally was found by border guards of the Mukachevo detachment last night.
Around 10 pm, a Renault truck driven by a 29-year-old Ukrainian citizen arrived to the border checkpoint "Dyakove" on the border with Romania. In the vehicle, the Ukrainian was transporting cargo of car tires from Serbia to Ukraine. During the visual inspection of the trailer, the border guards noticed damage to the sealed wire, which was the reason for in-depth inspection. While inspecting the cargo, the joint inspection team saw a man trying to hide between the tires. The border guards detained the man, and during the initial interrogation he explained that he was 16 years old and a citizen of Afghanistan. The guy also said he wanted to get to Italy.
After conducting filtration measures, the illegal traveler will be handed over to Romanian law enforcement under the readmission agreement
