Employees of Transcarpathian Customs prevented an export of a significant amount of tobacco products from Ukraine. The offense was revealed at the customs post "Dyakovo" of the Transcarpathian Customs. A Ukrainian citizen tried to illegally transport tobacco products to Romania in a truck.
According to the documents submitted for the customs control, he was carrying furniture from Ukraine to Romania.
During the analysis of the customs control documents, customs officers decided to carry out a full customs inspection of the vehicle and the cargo. Consequently, they found tobacco products hidden from customs control, which were in cardboard boxes disguised as furniture,.
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 under Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine.
At present, customs officials are drawing up a report on the violation of customs rules and determining the amount and value of the hidden tobacco products.
