Eight Indian Nationals Detained for Illegal Border Crossing in Estonia

The events started on Thursday at 8:30 a.m., when local residents informed the police that eight people who looked like foreigners had been spotted at the Veretin intersection.

On the same day, border guards detained a group of foreigners near the village of Masluva, about 1.5 kilometers from the temporary control line.

All eight are young men of Indian origin. They were taken to Veru police station for further investigation. The documents found with the men show that they had arrived in Russia through the airport in Moscow.

Mēlis Sarepū, head of the Border Guard Office of the Southern Prefecture, said that the illegal border crossing took place in the Setoma municipality, at the recently opened border section, where a fence has been built and the necessary work has been done to prepare for the installation of surveillance equipment, but the equipment is not sufficient for now.

“Unfortunately, it is known that the border was illegally crossed at a place where a fence with barbed wire has been built, but this in itself unfortunately does not completely rule out border crossing,” the officer said. He added that the prevention of illegal border crossing will become more effective when the border facilities are fully built and the necessary equipment is installed.

Estonian border guards have contacted their Russian counterparts to find opportunities to send persons back to Russia. Negotiations on this issue are ongoing.
