During special measures, Vitebsk customs officers, in cooperation with employees of the dubrovensky district police department, suspended the movement of Russian vehicles DAF and VOLVO, in which fruit was illegally transported to the territory of the Russian Federation.
The trucks were traveling to the Belarusian-Russian border through the dubrovensky district. One road train contained more than 20 tons of fresh oranges, peaches, nectarines and medlars, and the second one contained more than 20 tons of apples.
