In Transcarpathia, border guards helped the Security Service officers to detain armed men
Comprehensive law enforcement measures in combating crime at the state border in Transcarpathia continue. Yesterday, during the operation in the area of the Mukachevo Detachment, officers of the Security Service of Ukraine faced resistance during the arrest of two persons possibly involved in illegal activity. The men used hunting weapons against the law enforcement officers.
Hearing the shots, border patrol of the Mukachevo detachment, that was patroling nearby, immediately arrived at the scene. As a result of further joint actions of border guards and the Security Service officers, the offenders were localized. In total, law enforcement officers detained 7 citizens of Ukraine and seized from them 1 shotgun and 2 rifles, as well as 29 rounds.
The detained persons may be involved in illegal activities in the region, including illegal movement of persons across the state border.
Currently, the detainees have been taken to the National Police unit. The investigation continues.
