<p> in minimizing customs payments at the “Vadul-Siret” post of the Chernivtsi customs, the damage from which for the state is estimated at 290 million UAH.</p>
<p>This was reported by the NABU press service.</p>
<p>The scheme consisted of disguising expensive imports from Turkey (clothing, shoes, accessories) with so-called cheap cover goods (fabric, chipboard, brick) or registering the transport as empty. This is one of the most common violations of customs rules.</p>
<p>Under this scheme, customs post officials, on the basis of forged documents, ensured the extraordinary passage of trucks without inspection. Subsequently, the transport went to the warehouses of entrepreneurs, where highly liquid goods were unloaded and sold, and the cover goods loaded instead were delivered to the Chernivtsi customs post for registration and payment of underestimated payments. </p>
