An attempt to illegally move tobacco products across the border was prevented by the border guards of the Mukachevo detachment last night.

In the "Yablunivka" sector, the border guards detained a man without documents. At the scene of detention, there were also two horses with a caravan and 15 boxes of cigarettes wrapped in black polyethylene. The man and his acquaintances planned to smuggle tobacco products to Romania, but the rest of the men, having realized that they had been exposed, ran away. 

The detainee was taken to the border guard unit for drawing up reports on administrative offense under Article 204 of the Code of Administrative Offenses "Illegal crossing or attempted illegal crossing of the state border of Ukraine". The tobacco products were also delivered to the border guard department and will be subsequently handed over to the SFS employees.

The case will be forwarded to court, which will determine the sentence.
