Ukrainian border guards detained a “suspicious Russian,” who was planning to get to the EU countries at the Domanovo checkpoint on the border with Belarus. A passport, a knife and files with propaganda of “radical Islam” were found among the belongings of a native of the Chechen Republic. This is reported on the website of the State Border Guard.
The Russian himself has denied involvement in terrorist groups and insisted that he planned to get to Ukraine for further illegal travel to EU countries. However, he could not give any explanation on how he wanted to do this.
Detected objects were seized by law enforcement officers; the person was not allowed across the state border and prohibited from entering the territory of Ukraine.
Earlier, law enforcers have exposed the grouping, which created the channel for the illegal migration. About 35 people were the members of the grouping as the Internal Ministry of Ukraine reported.
The citizens of Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Slovakia and Belarus entered the grouping. They tried to illegally transfer people from the countries of South-East Asia to Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and further transfer to Germany.
The migrants gathered in Kyiv and Odesa and then they were taken to Zakarpattia region and illegally transferred through the state border. The members of the grouping were monitored since last spring.
