As a result, the suspicion was confirmed: cigarettes "ROTHMANS" made in Ukraine with excise stamps of Ukraine were found hidden in the car. The total amount of the tobacco products was 240 packs.
The cigarettes were hidden from customs control in specially made caches under the front wings of the car. To reach the hidden goods, customs officers removed the steel plates that covered the cigarettes.
