"Tourists" from Hungary and Russia were carrying to Ukraine 27,000 euros with unknown purpose
Border guards, at the checkpoint "Tisa" on the border with Hungary, found a significant amount of undeclared money that travelers tried to move across the border in violation of the current legislation of Ukraine.
Two men, citizens of Hungary and the Russian Federation, were crossing the border to Ukraine by a car with Slovak registration as the driver and passenger, respectively. When "green berets" were checking their passports, documents for the car, and the grounds for lawful stay in Ukraine, they found out a number of factors for in-depth inspection of the vehicle. Also, during the interview with the citizen of Russian Federation and the check on databases, it was found out that it was his first visit to Ukraine, and he had come to Hungary "for tourism." The man could not explain the purpose of his visit to Ukraine and the route.
As a result of in-depth inspection of the car, border guards and customs officers of the Chop Customs found undeclared foreign currency in the amount of 27,000 Euro hidden in the armrest of the rear seat, under the first aid kit. The citizen of Hungary recognized the found foreign currency as his property, but could not explain its origin and purpose of importation. The cash in the amount of 27,000 euro (477,900 UAH) was seized by the customs officials. In addition, the citizen of the Russian Federation was denied entry to Ukraine and returned to Hungary, and his companion returned to Hungary on his own accord.
