Sobrance, August 30 (TASR) – A Ukrainian national, flying on what appeared a makeshift powered parachute, in the wee hours of Friday illegally crossed the Ukrainian-Slovak border to land in the fields in Slovakia, the Slovak police reported later on Friday.

The border patrols noticed the sound of an unknown flying object heading from Ukraine to Slovakia at night. They found and arrested the Ukrainian between the villages of Jenkovce and Bezovce (Kosice region) in the morning.
