A Ukrainian's trip to the EU ended at the customs post "Uzhgorod" of the Transcarpathian Customs Office, where an attempt to illegally export from Ukraine 38 cartons of cigarettes of different brands with excise stamps was prevented.

Based on the results of the analysis and risk assessment, customs officers sent a car Volkswagen with foreign registration driven by a Ukrainian citizen heading to the EU countries in private affairs for a customs inspection. 

Thus, in a specially made cache in the fuel tank of the car, they found cigarettes hidden from customs control.

Such actions of the citizen of Ukraine, in particular moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control using specially made caches, have signs of violation of customs regulations under Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, and therefore a report on violation of customs rules was drawn up, the cigarettes and the vehicle, the value of which is being established, were seized.
