About 3,500 migrants tried to illegally cross the border between Russia and Belarus in order to end up in Europe, said Army General Vladimir Kulishov, First Deputy Director and Head of the Border Guard Service of the FSB of Russia. In an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta on the occasion of the upcoming Border Guard Day, Kulishov noted that in other sections of the state border of the Russian Federation, in addition to the Ukrainian one, “the situation remains also dynamic and is formed mainly under the influence of unprecedented political, economic and informational pressure from the United States and its allies on the Russian Federation.” On the land section, the number of attempts to illegally cross the state border by foreigners traveling to Russia for “migration purposes”, including those using its territory as a transit for moving to the countries of Western and Northern Europe, does not decrease, Kulishov noted. “An increase in the number of such violations was recorded last fall year and was called exacerbation of the migration situation on the external border of the Union State, associated with an increased flow of migrants, mainly from the countries of Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, who traveled to the EU countries through the territory of the Republic of Belarus. About 3,500 persons of this category subsequently tried to illegally cross the Belarusian-Russian border to depart for the EU countries in other directions,” the general said. ” /> The FSB told about the attempts of Ukrainian militants to get into Russia
