While patrolling, border guards saw unknown people carrying packages with tobacco products towards the border. To stop the illegal activities, border guards made several warning shots. One of the offenders was detained by the border guards, and the other two fled. 30 meters to the border, the offenders left packages containing 4,000 packs of cigarettes.

A 20-year-old citizen of Ukraine, resident of Mukachevo, was detained. The young man was charged with administrative offenses under Part 1 of Art. 204-1 and 185-10 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, the case was sent to the court, which will decide the punishment.

The found tobacco products will later be handed over to the SFS.
