"We have been recently recording the increase of the illegal migrants flow to the EU. Although the situation is under control, the number of illegal migrants, detained attempting to violate the state border particularly in the western sector, has increased significantly.
"There are often groups of up to 15 people, if we take recent cases of detention of illegal migrants from Afghanistan as an example. We noticed that some of these groups had committed up to three attempts to illegally cross the border and get into the EU. Ukraine is not their destination point. Migrants always used Ukraine as a transit country," he said.
