The press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine responded to the claim made by Chief Military Prosecutor Anatolii Matios that 150 km of the Ukrainian-Hungarian border is in private property and the border guards are denied full access to the land.

“Despite the fact that the plots of land are situated in the immediate area of the state border of Ukraine are in private property, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine is guarding the state border to the full extent, patrolling the border and managing other tasks,” the statement says.

Appeals have also been made to court to cancel the lease for the land that is close to the border.

Speaker of Zakarpattia Regional Administration Yaroslav Galas in a commentary for 112.UA corrected Matios, saying that it’s not 150 km of the border, but 130 for the border with Hungary.

However, he added that the same situation occurred with the land near the border of Romania and Slovakia.

As the legislation hasn’t been worked out properly, the village council managed to lease the land. However, the appeals to court have been made to return the land into state property.
