In the evening, another Ukrainian was deprived of their 'Opel' at the border-crossing point 'Uzhhorod'. The border guards discovered 298 packs of cigarettes inside the wheels.
At midnight, it was the turn of the workers of the border-crossing point 'Tysa' again. There, the border guards discovered a hundred packs of cigarettes in the tank and the rear bumper of a 'Volkswagen', under the first aid kit and the jack-screw. This time, a Hungarian citizen lost their car. In the morning, another unfortunate smuggler decided to check the attention of the border guards at the border-crossing point 'Malyi Bereznyi'. As a result, 1560 packs of cigarettes were discovered in the 'Mercedes' driven by a Hungarian during the inspection.
