A car with cigarettes was seized on the Ukrainian-Slovak border (PHOTOS)
At the international checkpoint "Uzhgorod", border guards together with customs officers prevented illegal transportation of excisable goods across the border.
An "enterprising" citizen of Ukraine, heading to Slovakia by a passenger car "BMW" with foreign license plates, chose the simplified border crossing lane. However, upon arrival at the border and customs control, our countryman could not hide his anxiety, which was the reason for in-depth inspection of the car. As a result, in the recesses, that were made in the luggage compartment, interior and engine compartment, inspectors found 471 packs of cigarettes of the brands JIN LING, NZ BLACK SUPER SLIMS and MARLBORO GOLD.
The cigarettes and the car were seized according to the law. The "BMW" (made in 2004) was assessed at almost 162,000 UAH. The cost of tobacco products is being established.
