Employees of the Ukrainian border guards detained at the border with Poland in the car of the assistant to the Deputy of the Polish Sejm, carrying contraband cigarettes, and amber.
«The assistant to the Deputy of the Polish Sejm tried to smuggle the amber and cigarette… On leaving Ukraine should have the car «Chrysler» Polish registration. The driver, a Polish citizen born in 1995, said he is the assistant to the Deputy of the Polish Sejm and asked for a priority passage, because it was necessary for official purposes and in a hurry on important state business. The man even gave the police a letter of request personally from the Deputy», —said the press-Secretary of the state border service of Ukraine Oleg Slobodyan on his page in Facebook.
He added that Ukrainian border guards still looked at the car and found it with more than 2.4 thousands of packs of cigarettes with Ukrainian excise stamps and about 12 kilograms of raw amber.
