Customs officers of Lviv branch of the State Border Service detained a Ukrainian citizen who tried to smuggle eight boxes of parts for the T-72A tank into Poland.
The wooden boxes contained parts of the hydraulic system.
According to the State Border Service, the man intended to carry them in an Iveco truck, which was to have crossed the border at Rawa Ruska.
“In the course of inspection of the vehicle and documents, border guards had doubts about the legality of the goods being tranported. Therefore they decided to search the truck. The guards found eight wooden boxes containing parts of the hydraulic system. The boxes had military designations on them,” the press release says.
