Ukrainian Flees Lovers Quarrel by Crossing Border in Stolen Tractor

MOSCOW, September 2 (RIA Novosti) – A Ukrainian man who got into a fight with his girlfriend in a Russian border village stole her father’s tractor and made an apparently unlawful run for the border, local media reported.

Border guards followed the vehicle’s tracks to the 48-year-old Ukrainian’s house in a village just across the state line and found him reportedly so drunk he was barely able to stand, local news site said Monday.

The man, whose identity was not disclosed, faced 15 days in jail for crossing the border illegally, the site reported. However, it was not clear whether he would face time for taking the tractor.
