Chronicles of Transcarpathian smuggling

Thus, while patroling, the border guards of the Mukachevo detachment intercepted a batch of "New Year gifts", which smugglers intended to illegally move to neighboring Hungary. This was announced by the press service of the Mukachevo border guard detachment.

An inspector of the "Velyka Palad" department heard near the border the sound of a motor vehicle, which he immediately reported. The response team was immediately sent to the place of possible location of the vehicle. The search was initiated, during which the patrol detected a group of unknown persons with packages trying to overcome the fence. In order to stop the offenders, border guards made several warning shots. Realizing that they had been exposed, the offenders left the packages and, taking advantage of the considerable distance from the law enforcement agencies, ran away.

During the inspection, the response team found 16 packages of tobacco products. 

The offenders planned to cross the border across the Botar canal, their abandoned packages contained 11,750 packs of cigarettes. The tobacco products were delivered to the border guard department and will be subsequently handed over to the SFS employees.
