The tvn24.pl Internet portal has informed that, over the course of recent months, Ukrainians have been shipping bulletproof vests and helmets across the border on a large scale. The article cites the President of Open Dialogue Foundation.
“Shipping large quantities of such equipment without a relevant permit is actually a crime. – Vests are treated similarly to guns or tanks – Bartosz Kramek of the Open Dialogue Foundation explains. The customs officers have already confiscated a number of shipments lacking the relevant permits, and several persons are charged with crimes punishable by up to 10 years’ imprisonment.”
