A woman, who tried to smuggle UAH 740 thousand and 298 bank cards opened to nominees, has been detained at Chugunovka checkpoint during customs inspection. It was found that she was transporting the money, hidden in packages of flour, through Russia to the territory controlled by militants. 

Now the SSU officers are carrying out operational activities aimed at establishing the origin of money. Having received indirect evidence, they also consider the version of possible use of the contraband channel for financing criminal activities of illegal armed groups.
