Polish border guards detained the man who attempted to bring the artillery system across the border with Ukraine. Polskie Radio reported that, specifying that the actual incident took place on January 4.

Parts of the howitzer were found in the chests hidden in the van driven by 22-year-old Ukrainian. According to the spokesman of the Helm district prosecutor's office, the man knew what kind of cargo he carried. He even had a number of documents for that, but it still appeared not enough to bring the howitzer across the border.

The perpetrator was detained; Polish Internal Security Agency got interested in this case.
