An attempted illegal export of tobacco products from Ukraine was stopped at the customs post "Tisa" of the Transcarpathian customs. A citizen of Ukraine tried to smuggle cigarettes in a car "MERCEDES-BENZ S 350".

The citizen chose "green corridor" for customs clearance and, during oral questioning, denied having any goods, including those subject to declaration, and said that he was not carrying any goods hidden from customs control.

Based on signs of presence of specially manufactured caches in the vehicle, customs officers decided to conduct an in-depth customs inspection of the vehicle. Thus, customs officers found in a specially manufactured cache 820 packs of tobacco products hidden from customs control. All the found the cigarettes were domestically produced, with excise stamps of Ukraine, brand "Rothmans Demi". The cost of the cigarettes, according to the labels, is 18,040 UAH, and the cost of the car is over 825.000 UAH.

Thus, the citizen of Ukraine committed acts aimed at moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control, ie using specially manufactured caches.

These actions have signs of violation of customs regulations referred to in Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. Based on Article 511 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, the goods, that are direct objects of the violation of customs regulations, and the vehicle with specially manufactured caches used to conceal goods were seized.
