An SSU (Security Service of Ukraine) unit has seized a truck carrying 13 tons of meat worth UAH 600, 000 outside the village of Novotroitskoye, the Donetsk region, on August 25, 2015.

The vehicle, headed toward the separatists-controlled area, tried to gain entry by bypassing the checkpoints established along the dividing line.

Article 332-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (illegal entry/exit into/from the temporarily occupied territory) carries a penalty of 3 to 8 years in prison, including seizure of vehicles, the SSU reports.
