“The foreigner crossed the outside border from Ukraine to Slovakia illegitimately, outside the border crossing, and thus they stayed on our territory illegally,” Border- and Alien Police Presidium spokeswoman Agnesa Kopernická, told the TASR newswire. “They were then all administratively extradited from Slovakia.”
