At night, border guards of Mukachevo Detachment prevented another attempt of cigarette smuggling to Hungary.
Around two in the morning, border guard patrol of the department "Yablunivka" noticed a group of persons moving toward the Ukrainian-Hungarian border. As it turned out, the offenders tried to carry to Hungary 7 packages of tobacco products. They were detained near the state border. They were three Ukrainian citizens, two of whom were 24 years old and another one was 20.
The detainees were 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 found packages containing 3390 packs of cigarettes 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.
