2,160 contraband cigarettes will not go to Europe

Border guards of Mukachevo Detachment "Luzhanka" unit found in the SUV stuffed with cigarettes two thousand one hundred and sixty thousand cigarettes.

         It is unclear what motives guided the driver of the "Mercedes", when he chose the "green corridor" lane at the checkpoint "Luzhanka", but it did not help him. The border guards almost immediately noticed a lot of changes in the structural characteristics of the vehicle, and for good reason. Indeed, in the luxury SUV there was almost no free space where you could hide more cigarette. As a result of the vehicle inspection, border guards found cigarettes "MINSK superslims" and "5 MINSK superslims". A protocol on violation of customs regulations was drawn up. The vehicle was seized and assessed at one hundred and eighty thousand hryvnias. The evaluation of the seized tobacco products will be done later.
