"Winged smuggling" again - a small aircraft crashed near Uzhgorod
State Border Guard Service announces information on the crash of a small aircraft moving toward the border - such aircrafts are used to carry contraband to Europe.
Last night, border guards of the Chop detachment received from local residents and the national police the information that around 19.00, in the village of Korytnyany, 3 km from Uzhgorod, and 10 km from the border, probably due to collision with a power transmission line, a small aircraft moving toward the border for smuggling purposes crashed.
In order to check the received information and to prevent illegal activities, border guards immediately arrived at the place of the alleged accident and informed the Slovak colleagues.
Currently, they have found at the scene only fragments of hang-glider blades and found out that shortly after the collision a car with a trailer had arrived at the scene of the accident. Its passengers took the fragments. Currently, the operation "Interception" has been announced in the region. The search for the persons involved in the accident continues.
