In Kiev SBU detains organizers of legalization of illegal immigrants in Ukraine
The SBU officers jointly with the Darnytsia Department of the Metropolitan National Police under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor's Office detained in Kyiv the members of the organized group that produced fake documents for legalization of illegal migrants in our country.
The law enforcers established that the members of the organized group produced fake documents for citizens of the Russian Federation and the Middle East countries for subsequent illegal transfer through the national border of Ukraine by their accomplices.
During the authorized searches of the residences of the suspects, the law enforcers seized fake seals of Ukraine state authorities, private legal companies, banking institutions, notaries, as well as passports, birth certificates, residence permits, warrants and certificates of state registration of civil status acts.
A large part of the seized documents comprised of passports of citizens of the Russian Federation, as well as passports of the foreigners from the regions with high terrorist activity.
