A Transcarpathian tried to export old coins and medals (PHOTO)
Yesterday, around 17.30, officers of the Border Guard Service department "Vylok" performing their duties for the protection of the state border of Ukraine in the checkpoint "Vylok" prevented the attempted illegal export of ancient coins, orders and medals that were hidden in a vehicle.
Thus, during the border control, border guards became suspicious about the possible movement of prohibited items across the state border by a citizen of Ukraine, a resident of Transcarpathian region in a car "Mercedes-Benz".
As a result, the vehicle was transferred from the "green corridor" lane to the "red corridor" lane and during the inspection of the car, border guards found in the luggage compartment 50 hidden ancient coins and about 25 orders and medals.
The total value of the detained "treasures" will be determined only after expert examination, but we can assume that it will be a lot.
