Ukrainian citizen arrested while smuggling cigarettes by drone

Last week a resident of Chop, a town in Western Ukraine, was arrested while trying to smuggle 16 cartons of cigarettes Marlboro to Hungary by drone.

Another 16 cartons which were probably supposed to be “transported” too were confiscated along with the drone at the time of arrest.

Since the beginning of the year, State Border Guard Service of Ukraine has recorded 13 attempts of smuggling tobacco goods by drones, according to the official press release.
