On the Ukrainian-Polish border guards together with employees of regional customs DFS stopped trying to move across the border, a record number of cigarettes in the trailer with the horses. About this on his page in Facebook wrote the assistant to the Chairman of the state border service Oleg Slobodyan.

On the eve of crossing the border “Krakovets” in Lomovskoy region, for the issue came to a special truck German registration, which transported three breeding horses from Kano to Germany. During a standard inspection of the vehicle and interviewing the driver, a resident of Lviv region, the attention of the guards was drawn to the fact that the driver is not aware of the specifics of the transportation of such “goods” and, in fact, the purpose of their delivery abroad. The driver said that he’s driving only from the city, and other parts not known to them.

“In addition, during visual inspection of the truck the guards drew attention to the differences of internal and external length of the trailer, it was also confirmed by special measuring devices. The car was taken out of the General stream and informed the owners of “live goods” for the latter to provide additional transport for their safe withdrawal of the trailer. During detailed inspection found that the inside made an additional wall, which provided enough space for the storage of contraband,” wrote said.

Having dismantled its law enforcement officers found contraband cigarettes, which are carefully laid out in the cache. So, hoping that no Ukrainian control services, nor law enforcement officers in other countries will not unload the horses from the trailer, and even more will not scan this special x-ray equipment, the smugglers hoped to ship to Germany more than 40 thousand packs of cigarettes of various brands.

“Now there is an in-depth review of truck and calculation of contraband cigarettes seized in addition to attempted transportation will be charged a considerable fine. Horses who unwittingly become participants in a smuggling Scam, return home”, – said Slobodyan.
