Two thousand illegal cigarettes will not get to Romania
Two citizens of Ukraine were trying to carry to Romania two thousand packs of cigarettes. They were arrested yesterday around midnight by Mukachevo border guards. The men, who tried to run away from police officers, are local residents, but they had no documents. Reports on administrative violations were drawn up against the detained men, residents of the village of Dilove. Tobacco products will be dlivered to the customs office. It is also interesting that at the checkpoint Dyakove, border guards found 153 packs of cigarettes hidden in structural cavities of a car Audi.
