Criminals who "helped" conscripts to leave Ukraine based on forged documents were exposed in the capital. The reason for leaving was "unfitness for duty."

The organizers took $7,000 from one person and guaranteed unimpeded border crossing. On the other side of the "fugitives" were waiting for foreign accomplices who were to meet them.

As a result of a special operation conducted simultaneously in Kyiv, Lviv, and Zakarpattia oblasts, law enforcement officers, detained five people.

In addition, in the Ivano-Frankivsk region, the SSU detained members of a criminal group who used the money to help conscripts go abroad. A criminal representative and a local visa agency head are involved in the scheme.

For € 7,000, the attackers produced a complete package of fictitious documents alleging that the evaders belonged to volunteer organizations. On this basis, they entered them into the database, which makes it possible to cross the border.

The Security Service of Ukraine documented the receipt of 270,000 UAH by criminals for crossing the border by a resident of the Ivano-Frankivsk region and detained two people involved in the "hot" criminal proceedings.

Investigations are currently underway into both of the revealed facts. The detainees were informed about the suspicion under Art. 332 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - illegal transportation of persons across the state border of Ukraine.

Detections of illegal activities were carried out by SSU officers together with the National Police under the procedural guidance of the Kyiv and Ivano-Frankivsk regional prosecutor's offices.
