A Frenchman has been detained by Polish border guards after a search of his suitcase revealed shocking contents – his Russian bride.

Polish border guards at the Terespol border crossing from Belarus said they searched the luggage of a French train passenger in his 60s, and discovered his large suitcase was concealing his Russian wife, who is in her 30s.

The guards said the couple told she was hiding in the suitcase because they feared she would not be allowed to cross the border from Belarus to Poland due to her lack of European Union citizenship.

Dariusz Sienicki, spokesman for Polish Border Guard, said the woman “was in good shape and wasn’t in need of any medical attention”.
