 Migration police of the capital have exposed the channel of illegal crossing of the state border

Recently, employees of the migration police of the capital city of Glavka exposed a channel of illegal crossing of the state border of Ukraine

The criminal scheme was organized by two men. Offenders produced documents related to pseudo-volunteer activities, which allowed foreigners to temporarily live in Ukraine. The cost of the service was 26,000 hryvnias.

The crime was uncovered during the implementation of operational information by employees of the migration police department of the capital Glavka together with the investigative department under the procedural guidance of the Kyiv City Prosecutor's Office. The law enforcement officers worked professionally and harmoniously. The perpetrators were arrested in accordance with Article 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine while receiving money for the services provided.

"A man from Donetsk and a man from Kyiv, born in 1982 and 1980, produced documents related to pseudo-volunteer activities, with the help of which foreigners were able to obtain permits for temporary or permanent residence on the territory of our state. The cost of such a service was 26,000 hryvnias. As we learned, the violators did not refuse such a service to a Russian citizen either. At the place of detention of one of the criminals, we seized the money he received from his wife. Subsequently, searches were conducted at the residence addresses of the persons involved and the car was searched, from which money, drafts, documents, and a mobile phone were seized. At the moment, the detainees are in a temporary detention center," Denys Demyanyuk, the head of the migration police department in the capital city of Glavku, said.

The extras were notified of the suspicion of committing a criminal offense under Part 3 of Art. 332 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine – illegal transportation across the state border of Ukraine, committed for selfish reasons. The article provides for deprivation of liberty for a period of seven to nine years with deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for a period of up to three years with confiscation of property.

"We continue to ensure law and order as much as possible, help residents, and also identify subversive and intelligence groups," said Kyiv police chief Ivan Vyhivskyi.
