However, there are still attempts by some citizens to smuggle arms and ammunition across the customs border.

In particular, the luggage of a citizen D.Y. was checked in the prescribed manner while crossing the customs checkpoint "S.Najimov".

As a result, it was discovered that the man was hiding an optical sight for a "Dragunov sniper rifle" that was not listed in the passenger customs declaration and was not reported in the customs verbal request.

Customs authorities are currently investigating the incident.
