Polish customs officers seized more than 65.000 packs of Belarusian cigarettes that were hidden in a truck carrying boards near the Polish-Lithuanian border in Budzisk. The cost of the found contraband is estimated at more than 970.000 zlotys ($243,400).

In the published photos and videos, it is noticeable that Belarusian cigarettes Minsk and NZ produced by the Belarusian factory Neman are hidden in the lumber. The truck was driven by a 56-year-old Lithuanian citizen.

A truck with contraband hidden among the boards was stopped near the Polish-Lithuanian border in Budzisko. Customs officers X-rayed the truck and found that some pallets with boards had caches of cigarettes.

Smuggling of tobacco with Belarusian excise taxes is associated with businessman Alexei Oleksin, one of Lukashenka’s friends, who is notorious in Belarus thanks to the ubiquitous Tabakerka.
