The smugglers detained by law enforcement officers tried to enter Crimea in a Renault minibus through the Kalanchak checkpoint in the Kherson region. During the passage of customs control, which the State Border Service held together with the SBU officers, unknown objects hidden inside the loudspeakers were discovered. It turned, that this is a dual-use equipment, used in ship communication and navigation systems.
During searches, which Sbushniki spent at home at “intruders” in Nikolaev and Kherson regions, they found other items, used on ships and vessels. Now finds, allegedly, researched by experts. SBU is working on a version of, that the discovered items were stolen from the shipbuilding enterprises of the Nikolaev region, and finds out their origin.
At the same time, the SBU, looks like, they themselves do not realize the incident with the statements. After all, in Kiev they constantly say, that the Crimea – it is Ukraine. But if “So”, then what kind of smuggling are we talking about? It turns out, that the SBU indirectly recognizes Crimea as Russian…
Earlier, the Ukrainian portal Defense Express reported, that last year the SBU counterintelligence stopped an attempt to steal documents on the Neptune anti-ship missile systems. In total, according to the results of the past year, the Ukrainian Security Service intended to transfer to the Ministry of Defense the military property seized from the smugglers in the amount of 1 billion hryvnia (2,65 billion rubles).
