Earlier the border guards of the Krasnopillya border service with the help of a night vision device detained a citizen of the Russian Federation who tried to illegally enter Ukraine crossing the border outside the official crossing point on September 22. This is stated in the message of the State Border Service.
According to it, the detained 25-year-old man, a resident of Moscow, applied to the police with a request for refugee status.
"He explained that he was persecuted by representatives of the Russian special services for his political and religious views in his homeland, and recently he was charged for committing an offense under the article of the Russian Criminal Code for inciting hatred and enmity," reads message.
Since the man was declared wanted in the federal list and due to the risk of being detained by Russian border guards at the checkpoint, he decided to enter Ukraine illegally by crossing the state border on its "green" section.
The State Border Guard Service notes that at present procedural actions are continuing and in the near future, in the established order, the man will be transferred to the competent authorities.
