EASTERN EUROPEAN BORDERS ANNUAL RISK ANALYSIS 2015 PUBLISHED

In 2014, only 0.5% of all illegal border-crossings reported by EU Member States at the external borders took place at the 6 000-kilometre-long eastern borders of the EU, totalling 1 275.

Meanwhile, the economic downturn in Russia led to a decline in regular traffic flows at EU Member States’ borders with the country, with the weakening rouble reducing the number of Russian travellers and shoppers crossing the EU borders. This trend was the most pronounced near the end of last year.
