A few hours ago, at one of the checkpoints in the Donetsk region, the border guards of the Kramatorsk squad have seized a man with a significant amount of money intended to be brought to the uncontrolled territory.

The money has been found during the inspection at the newly opened checkpoint "Marinka". A 61-year-old Ukrainian citizen driving “Toyota” tried to smuggle currency to Donetsk and has attracted the border guards’ attention by his overly agitated behavior. As a result, in the course of additional inspection the guards found in his inner pocket more than USD 40 000 thousand.

The offender and the car were guards handed over to the competent authorities.
