In 2012, in Transcarpathia border guards detained 630 offenders of the border legislation which is 250 people less than for the same period in 2011. Officials of Mukachevo and Chop border guard detachments considered 730 administrative cases which is 252 less than in the previous year. This shows a significant decrease of the facts of administrative violations in the areas served by these border guard units.
At the same time, they returned to Ukraine 34 illegal immigrants who had freely crossed the border via the Transcarpathian stretch. In 2011, in Europe they detained only 25 illegals who had managed to cross the Transcarpathian stretch of the state border.
