The operation was conducted by the SBU Office in Transcarpathian region, together with investigators of the Territorial Department of the State Bureau of Investigations located in Lviv, under the procedural control of the Uzhgorod garrison military prosecutor’s office. The SBU prevented an attempt to smuggle anti-epidemic products out of the country. 
In Transcarpathia, the Security Service of Ukraine prevented illegal export of 11,000 protective masks from Ukraine, the press service of the service informed.
According to preliminary investigation, an inspector of the border guard unit "Uzhgorod" of the Chop Border Guard Detachment set up a scheme for receiving money for illegal smuggling of anti-epidemic products abroad.
“The investigators documented the fact that the official had demanded from a local resident 3 thousand US dollars. In return, the border guard promised to assist the man in moving 11 thousand protective masks worth more than half a million hryvnias to one of the European countries bypassing the control points", – the report reads.
Law enforcement officers detained the inspector of the State Border Guard Service in accordance with Art. 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine in Uzhgorod district during the transfer of the first part of the illegal benefit.
