In the course of inspection of the cargo compartment of the car, customs officers found about two tons of beef stacked in bulk on cardboard. The driver did not present documents for the goods.

The meat products were transported without the necessary veterinary and other accompanying documents, which would allow to confirm the guarantees of its quality and safety. Transportation was carried out with violation of the temperature regime and sanitary norms in a car not equipped for transportation of this type of products. To carry out additional checks, we handed over the cargo to specialists of the Rosselkhoznadzor Department for Bryansk, Smolensk and Kaluga regions,” – said the head of Smolensk customs Rustam Yakubov
