Ukraine is not a potential supplier of illegal migrants, and the EU does not see any threat from the Ukrainian side. Petro Tsyhykal, the Head of the Border Guard Service, said it in the interview “The State Border Guard Service has a military component and we continue its development” for 112.ua.
“Ukraine is not a potential supplier of illegal migrants. The Europeans do not see any threat, we have their credibility at a certain level. We are conducting joint operations, patrolling and control of the checkpoints along with our European colleagues,” he said.
According to him, the joint patrolling was introduced on the border with all the EU states Ukraine adjoins.
“There aren’t any issues with the service organization. The joint patrolling of the central segment of Ukraine-Moldova border started on December 7 in 2017,” Tsyhykal added.
