Ukraine Arrests Russian, Belarusian Mineral Fertilizers Worth $12 million

This is not the first case of confiscation of wagons with Belarusian fertilizers.

The Shevchenko District Court of Kyiv seized 315 wagons of mineral fertilizers totaling 360 million hryvnias (about $12 million) owned by Russian and Belarusian companies. This was reported by the press-center of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

According to the office, the wagons entered Ukraine, violating the country's customs legislation. The wagons were seized “in order to ensure the safety of this property as material evidence, and possible confiscation thereof in the future.”

The country's Bureau of Economic Security is conducting a pre-trial investigation into deliberate tax evasion on an especially large scale.

This is not the first case of confiscation of wagons with Belarusian fertilizers. At the end of May, in the Mykolaiv region, 188 wagons with mineral fertilizers worth about $20 million belonging to a Belarusian company were found and arrested on the territory of the seaport.
