The State Border Service is beefing up the Ukrainian-Romanian section of the border because of possible heightened risks of illegal immigrants’ crossings.

The service spokesman Oleh Slobodyan told a press conference held at Ukrinform, Ukrinform reports.

"Given the active efforts to combat illegal immigration enforced by Hungary, a change of immigrants traffic is predicted on the eastern route of their movement to the EU, in particular through the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine via Romania towards Hungary and Slovakia. This is confirmed by the results of the joint risk analysis made with our Hungarian colleagues," said Slobodyan and he noted that in this connection reinforcements of the border protection agency have been deployed in the area between the Chernivtsi and Transcarpathian regions.

Slobodyan reported that the State Border Service initiated a meeting with the regional and law enforcement agencies related to the specified program for cooperation and joint actions on this issue.
