Accordingly, they were asked to fill out customs declarations, where they indicated a small amount of foreign currency and personal items. During the verbal questioning men confirmed information that they indicated in the customs declarations and stated that did not carry any other goods.

However, when customs officers started customs examination of minibuses, they found in each of them a second vehicle. Motorcycles «APRILIA» «SHIVER 750» «Honda» SH300 travelled to Ukraine without any registration in the luggage compartments among personal belongings.

According to preliminary estimates the cost of motorcycle «APRILIA» of this model is almost 42 thousand hryvnia, and the cost of motorcycle «Honda» is currently being set by experts.
