An illegal trip from Georgia to Austria ended in Uzhgorod

Yesterday, thanks to timely received information, border guards of the department "Uzhgorod" managed to prevent another attempt to illegally cross the border.

As a result of efficiently planned and carried out arrangements for search of the offenders, on the outskirts of the regional center, they detained a trio of illegal migrants who were heading to the EU bypassing the checkpoint. Offenders, who were stopped just a few hundred meters from the border with Slovakia, told border guards that they were citizens of Georgia, however could not confirm it with any IDs. The destination of their trip was Austria.

The offenders were taken to the border guard department. The decision on legal liability and further fate of detainees will be taken in court.
