In the night of Saturday, July 18, Chernihiv border detachment together with customs officers prevented the importation of a large consignment of smuggled Belarusian cigarettes. It is reported by the state border service.
In Ukraine tried to enter two cars “DAF” and “MAN” supposedly with a cargo of waste paper. As it turned out, the semi trucks had double ceilings and walls. In the recesses were hidden 130,3 thousands of packs of Belarusian cigarettes without excise stamps.
Probably, the smugglers hoped that at night the guards will lose vigilance and not to be carefully to check them.
For violation of customs regulations truck drivers – citizens of Belarus are brought to administrative responsibility. Cigarettes and semi seized.
