“An attempt to deliver a shipment of meat in a garbage truck to Crimea has been made,” reads a statement released by the press service of the Border Guard Service.

According to the statement, the driver of a truck carrying meat products made a deal with the driver of a garbage truck. Under the deal, the garbage truck driver was to load the meat into his vehicle and deliver it into Crimea.

“Russian border guards have stopped a garbage truck loaded with meat from entering Crimea at the Armyansk checkpoint. That way the smart drivers were going to skip having their trucks checked by the checkpoint’s personnel,” reads the statement released by the press service.

The garbage truck’s driver has been made to pay a steep fine, reports RIA Novosti.
