An elderly man from Poltava city had to illegally transfer the money for the terrorist groups through Zaitseve checkpoint.
The Security forces tracked the car with the criminal and sent it for an in-depth inspection. The money was not found in the vehicle as the courier hid it on his body. To do this, he placed the money in a hunting cartridge belt, which he put on under his clothes.
The funds have been withdrawn. Criminal proceeding on the fact of financing of terrorism under article 258-5 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine is considered.
