Russian border guards stationed in Armenia have arrested a group of border-crossers who attempted to illegally cross the border from Turkey overnight October 15-16.
The Russian Federal Security Service’s Border Patrol Department said that the trespassers attempted to secretly enter the Araks River at nighttime and cross the border shortly. Border guards of Artashat, however, spotted and apprehended the group.
According to preliminary information the trespassers are originally from Southern Asia.
Law enforcement bodies are investigating the case to reveal the goal of the trespassers.
The arrested border crossers were handed over to Armenian law enforcement agencies as required by law.
