Mowing Their Way into Russia

Two Chinese men have been arrested after trying to sneak across the border into Russia on a lawnmower. Ananova had the story.

They tried to tell border guards at the Slavyanka border post in Khasansky County in Russia’s Far East that they had got lost while cutting the grass.

Russian border police said it was not the first time they had had to deal with rogue gardeners from China.

A spokesman said: “We have issued a number of warnings to our opposite numbers in China, but despite that they seem to have no control over the apparent nomadic habits of their gardening nationals.”
