YEREVAN, December 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian borderguards have detained dozens of border violators in Armenia in 2012, chief of the border department of the Russian Federal Security Service in Armenia Viktor Vlasov said on Tuesday, summing up the results of the outgoing year.
“In 2012, borderguards detained more than 190 violators of the state border and more than 50 violators of the border regime,” he said. “Borderguards revealed errors in documents of 2,000 people crossing Armenia’s border. More than 550 people were banned to cross the border.”
More than 150 cold steel pieces, more than 50 firearms munitions pieces, more than one kilogram of toxic substances and contraband goods to the sum of 300,000 roubles were seized. “Such results were achieved thanks to both efforts of borderguards and residents of border settlements,” Vlasov said. Thus, voluntary bordreguard teams took part in 3,000 border protection operations, both by themselves and jointly with border servicemen.
“As part of measures against illegal migration, new channels of illegal migration from Iran, Armenia and Georgia to West European and CIS countries via Russia and Armenia were exposed in 2012,” he added.
