The SBU, Ukraine’s security Service, ceased the illegal shipments traffic with its logistics centre located in Zakarpattya region, western Ukraine. The authority’s press service reported that on January 23.
Employees of the SBU and the National Police busted several local drivers whose managers used a commercial entity to order the bogus stamping tools, seals and licenses for international cargo traffic, customs office forms and other documents ‘issued’ by Ukraine, Russia and Slovakia.
The drivers used false documents to move the cargo to Europe and Russia; the law enforcers checked their offices and seized over a hundred items – seals, stamping tools and documents, all of which were seized.
The investigation is underway.
