Law enforcement officers detained a former border guard, who had been wanted for desertion since March 2015 and was hiding in the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as his wife, an ex-employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) press service reports.
"In March 2015, a serviceman of the Zhytomyr border detachment swore an oath - after a vacation, he did not return to the place of service and left for the Russian Federation, where he was hiding from the investigation," the report said.
As noted, the deserter’s wife offered the bribe to the official in the amount of $ 300 for assistance in obtaining a fictitious passport of a citizen of Ukraine and an individual tax number.
“To obtain fake documents, the deserter illegally crossed the state border with the Russian Federation and arrived in our country. Law enforcement officers detained the attacker and her husband at the State Migration Service in the Zhytomyr region, where they went to receive the promised“ documents,” the SBU press office states.
As we reported before, a number of refusals to citizens of Ukraine to enter Poland in 2019 amounted to 58,500 - this is 25% more than the previous year (then it was 46,700).
