Transcarpathia may receive gamma scanners that detect contraband without opening baggage compartments

Gamma scanners using "Roboscan" technology can check more than 200 trucks per hour and detect smuggled goods (including packs of cigarettes, amber, drugs) without opening the baggage compartment.

Currently there is not a single scanner at checkpoints located in Transcarpathian region, on the Ukrainian side. There used to be once, but then this expensive equipment was taken to Odesa, where it is not being used. It is impossible to check every truck crossing the border manually. The Romanians are ready to supply us with their own scanners and will even show how they work at the checkpoint "Dyakovo - Halmeu." The preparations for the testing have already begun; We will invite the Minister of Internal Affairs, management of the Fiscal and Border Guard Services of Ukraine to attend. And if the effectiveness of equipment is confirmed, we will enter into contracts for its supply.- H.
