The tobacco products were excluded and given to the customs officers. The truck with its trailer were detained. The tobacco is being remeasured and inspections are in process.
We note that smugglers have attempted to carry cigarettes with trucks through the Transcarpathian crossing borders to the countries of the EU many times. Thus, the customs officers of the State border service of Ukraine prevented the transporting of large quantities of smuggled goods at the border crossig points 'Uzhhorod' and "Tysa' in November of last year. The tobacco products where hidden among wood in the trucks. In August, a 'VOLVO' truck was detained. According to documents, it was transporting coils for cabels, among which cigarettes were discovered with Ukrainian excise stamps.
