Cigarettes with a touch of iron ore

Officers of the Chop Customs found 11,650 packs of cigarettes in one of the cars at the customs post "Batyeve."

The train was moving from Russia to Ukraine and was transporting iron ore concentrate. During the customs inspection, customs officials conducted the check of the car contents using a metal probe. Thus, they found cigarettes hidden from customs control. In particular, in one of the cars, they found 528 cartons of "Fest" with excise stamps, and 585 cartons of tobacco products "JIN LING" and 52 cartons of "Fest" without excise stamps. The cigarettes were in cardboard boxes, wrapped in polythene and hidden under a layer of ore.

Customs officers sent to the Main Office of the Ministry of Income in Transcarpathian region the report on the illegal act that contains elements of a crime under Art. 204 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
