Speaking on ZIK TV July 4, deputy minister for occupied territories Georgij Tuka declared that the army in Donbas and border guards in Western Ukraine are incriminated in contraband.
“The only thing that can stop the contraband is the lack of economic motives. No wall along the border can stop it. Look at the impressive wall between Mexico and USA. It hasn’t stopped the contraband,” Tuka said.
The European Union is an exemplary structure where the contraband is non-existent, he said.
