A Ukrainian airport’s CCTV cameras recorded a Moroccan passenger as he assaulted border guards.
After the man arrived at the airport on Thursday from Turkey and had an extended interview with the Ukrainian immigration authorities, officials decided not to allow the man into Ukraine.
Expressing anger and defiance, the man charged at the Ukrainian border guards, who immediately tackled and detained him. The guards took him to administrative officials responsible for noncompliance with law enforcement, reported Ukrainian news outlet UNIAN on Friday.
The Moroccan immigrant alleged that he was going to Ukraine to teach English and another language to children as part of an exchange program. The Ukrainian authorities did not believe the man, judging by his “poor English,” the news outlet reported.
According to the Ukrainian press service of the State Border Guard Service, the Moroccan man also failed to present evidence supporting his claims.
