KIEV, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian border guards from the Chop border unit detained two Russian citizens with the guitar and saxophone. Two 21-year-old residents of the Moscow Region were attempting to cross illegally the Ukrainian-Slovak border, an official from the Chop border unit of the Ukrainian State Border Service Roman Pavlenko said on Tuesday. The young men were crossing the snowy Carpathian Mountains with the help of the compass. The Ukrainian border guards from the border checkpoint Novoselitsa detained them near the border.
“The detained residents of the Moscow Region testified that the wish to go to Spain, where they hoped to find a job and settle in, made them commit the law breach,” Pavlenko said. The Russian citizens “will have to be brought to justice according to the Ukrainian effective legislation,” he said.
The Russian citizens were detained on January 5, spokesman for the Ukrainian State Border Service Andrei Demchenko told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. “According to the effective rules they should be interrogated, then the documents should be prepared and the evidence should be gathered,” he added. “The court will pass a verdict, if they acted independently, they can be brought to administrative responsibility, if someone helped them, they can be brought to criminal responsibility,” Pavlenko pointed out. Demchenko refrained from any assumptions over when the court may try a case over the detention of the border transgressors.
