One of the fugitives was thrown onto the Romanian coast.
Border guards rescued two men who were trying to cross Ukraine. Due to the cold current, the fugitives were thrown to different banks.
This is reported by the State Border Service.
“Two Transcarpathians tried to illegally cross the border from Romania to Ukraine through Tisa. Both were “armed” with wetsuits, however, from the first minutes of the dive, they lost strength due to the cold and powerful current. The first was thrown onto the Romanian shore, he was pulled out by Romanian border guards. The second was in Ukrainian, but he could not get out of the water on his own. The border guards pulled out the “diver” and took him to the unit, where they provided dry clothes and warmth,” the message says.
- Since the beginning of this year, border guards have exposed more than 220 illegal groups specializing in the transfer of Ukrainian men abroad .
