Security Service of Ukraine officers are investigating the illegal movement of a large amount of cash across the state border. In particular, the evidence base is being collected regarding the illegal export of 28 million US dollars and 1.3 million euros from Ukraine.

According to available information, these cash funds were packed in suitcases and moved in one go through the "green corridor" of the Transcarpathian customs checkpoint.

This way of withdrawing funds is contrary to Ukrainian legislation because no more than 10,000 USD can be withdrawn through the "green corridor" (without declaration) at a time.

Moreover, the customs officials have no right to let the car pass without its preliminary inspection. Therefore, having discovered the money, they had to confiscate it, as provided by law.
