In Bukovyna, border guards twice during one day stopped attempts of smugglers who tried to illegally smuggle tobacco contraband to neighboring Romania.
In particular, the servicemen of the Chernivtsi detachment blocked the road to two groups of smugglers who were heading to the state border. To detain them, border guards organized their pursuit and fired warning shots up. The smugglers threw off their heavy backpacks with cigarettes on the move and, in order not to get caught by the border guards, ran away.
It is worth noting that in both cases, the offenders lost 7.5 thousand packs of cigarettes. The approximate cost of the product is almost 300 thousand hryvnias.
