In Transcarpathia, social activists helped to apprehend an offender
Officers of the State Border Service work closely with members of community groups and organizations. Often they are involved in joint patrols and inspections of the areas adjacent to the border. They help to detain state border violators engaged in smuggling and illegal migrants.
Thus, yesterday, one of such offenders was arrested in Transcarpathia, at 1.5 km from the border after a report of a public organization member. He reported on an unknown man on the outskirts of the village of Botar to border guards of the department "Dyakovo" of Mukachevo Detachment. The suspicious man was arrested. Preliminary, it has been established that the "traveller" is a stateless person - a native of Russia, living in Belgium.
Currently, the investigation into this incident continues.
