The Verkhovna Rada has passed bill 3154 First reading "On immediate consideration by the courts of claims about forced deportation or detention of foreigners and stateless persons" due to the increasing number of cases when illegal immigrants cross the state border in order to get into the EU.

310 MPs voted for the bill. Deputy Chief of the State Migration Service said the bill has been worked out for more rapid combating the illegal migrants.

According to the migration official, the cases subject to immediate review by the court will accelerate immigrants’ deportation to their native countries.
