Ukrainians who illegally cross the border of the European Union will not be able to obtain refugee status. This was announced by the spokesperson for the State Border Guard Service, Andriy Demchenko, during a national telethon. 


He noted that Ukraine is actively cooperating with the EU countries and Moldova to counter any attempts to illegally cross the border by Ukrainians.

The official also called on those who organize illegal border crossings to refrain from doing so.
