Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Ukrainian border guards arrested Ukrainian diplomats who attempted to smuggle hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goods – including gold, cigarettes, and foreign currency, into Europe. 

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) released a statement on Mar. 1 that said counterintelligence officers “exposed and stopped the illegal activities of current and former officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine” who “used official documents from the foreign ministry to transport diplomatic posts and smuggle excisable goods.”

SBU said the diplomats, whose identities were not disclosed, attempted to smuggle foreign currency, gold, and tobacco items across the Ukrainian-Polish border. The State Bureau of Investigations (DBR) stopped the truck with diplomatic license plates before it could enter Europe.

According to RT News, a “driver for Ukraine’s embassy in Warsaw and an attache for consular affairs were detained by Ukrainian border guards on Sunday.” Ukrainian border guards uncovered $140,000, 67,200 euros, 11,600 Polish zlotys, 16 kilograms of gold, and 8,000 packs of cigarettes.

Ukrainian Diplomats Arrested For Attempting To Smuggle Gold Into EU

On Monday, Ukrainian Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Dmytro Kuleba took to Facebook to voice his outrage among the corruption in his government. Here’s what he said:

I recalled two employees suspected of corruption from abroad

Yesterday two employees of the Embassy of Ukraine in Poland were caught hot – they were detained at the border while trying to take a large number of currency, gold and smuggling cigarettes from Ukraine to Poland. The case for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is blatant.

I am convinced, it is important to take such cases outside, make them public. We need to break the shameful approach ′′ do not take the trash out of the house “. It just needs to be taken out. Otherwise we will live in the trash.

For my cadence as minister, we will not silence such shameful cases and the more we cover their figures. That’s why I instantly made three decisions.

1. Both employees I immediately withdrew from a long-term foreign business trip. Their embassy work is over. In the next couple of hours, all formalities on this issue will be completed.

2. Against both employees, we begin a disciplinary investigation into the facts identified. The investigation will be thorough and fast. Of course, no one canceled the presumption of innocence. But according to the results of the investigation, I will be ready to make any decision.

3. MFA will fully interact with law enforcement, from which we expect a quick and unbiased investigation and installation of all circumstances of the case.

Corruption is everywhere there are people. The only difference is whether it’s tolerated or not. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – no. I will never cover villains who think they can use diplomatic status not to serve the state and the people, but to personal illicit enrichment.

Each of the diplomatic services system, regardless of ranks and positions, who will cast a shadow on Ukrainian diplomacy, will feel all the undiplomaticity of my reaction.

SBU posted a video of the cache.

Besides Russia, Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the region. According to Corruption Perceptions Index, next to Ukraine stand Gambia, Iran, Myanmar, and Sierra Leone.

So it comes as no surprise that a pair of diplomats used their credentials and other forms of paperwork to aid in their attempt to smuggle goods into Europe.

You are part of a government of thieves backed by Joe Zombie and you complain about the corruption of two employees who wanted to add up as everyone in the madland does, you are not as honest as you would like us to believe, you are just the most hypocritical.

Just Me

Joe is totally senile, he could not even answer a simple question about Saudi Arabia and MBS and that is the reason he is not allowed to hold a press conference.

OK, but his 10% want it and take it for sure.

Just Me

His son ha become a billionaire ripping off the dumb Ukis in a scam organized by the Jews who have infested every orifice of Ukraine. It is corrupt top down.

Jens Holm

If true, thats very impressing. They are very poor there.

cechas vodobenikov

u are even poorer—no culture or soul, no intellectual or artistic wealth in culture less US colony “the banality of amerika: the radical absence of culture”. J Baudrilliard

Jens Holm

It can be a succes. People like him dare to elect in clever people and let them run things in a sober way.

I dont think he is senile. But he has made too many speak no think ones.

And yes, its clever to compensate for, what You are not good at.

They elected him. Its not Your president and dieperchanger.

cechas vodobenikov

jens think like senile hair sniffer on crack—jens becoming more lonely, stupified—biden installed fake election in autocracy —inverted totalianarism: Sheldon wolin, by queen billy gates

Just Me

The sick corrupt Jews are bleeding the hohols dry. Check out the names of the Uki “diplomats”. Saudi Arabia and UAE are next lol

Jens Holm

Yerrh, we are 7 billon jews and dancing queens too – ABBA DABBA DOO.

Did You write one of those books named 1001 bad excuses for not sitting on Your hands.

Arch Bungle

Ukraine is a third world shit-hole worse than anything in Africa.

The elites are already plundering their own people’s wealth.

This is what happens when you submit to Anglo-American rule.

Jens Holm

I see none gloryfying the Russian collapse. Not even the Russians do.

But it is true they and we defend the Ukrainians right to choose their own destiny with less connection to the rotten apple.

You must be very censured about what the rest of the world and even many in USA think about the USA democrasy. Many of the rest of us also has allowed us to propose changes, where only the Sanders are listeners.

jens rehab failed—USA collapse accelerating according to predictions—as Russia becomes ever more powerful jens urinates in diapers—LSD induced hallucinations creating nightmares for little jens—try a Hollywood cartoon w your Seroquel

Jens is Mossad Troll… she/he gets paid by the post.. this is how shim makes money, by spreading lies. At the end of ‘its shift’ it hands in all the links and totals the amount of words ‘trolled’ and goes and collects their shekels from MOSSAD.

Hasbara Hunter

It only shows what a Complete F*ckn Dumbass, Retards UkroNazis truly are…who is Going to Smuggle 8,000 packs of Cigarettes together with $140,000.- €67,200.-, 11,600 Polish Zlotys & 16 KILOGRAMS OF PURE GOLD??!!

They have probably been getting away with it for years.

Cromwell

this must be scrap gold because most of Ukrainians gold reserves were stolen a few weeks after the Coup and transported to the US FED,Yats was responsible,by the way where is that peice of Nazi trash? probably in Israel with his share.

chris chuba

They might have bought more gold as soon as they could get their hands on Hryvnia before it devalued to nothing. That’s what I would do.

Jens Holm

I would say they did most of it already under the Russian collapse.

cechas vodobenikov

jens mines potato in jutland; Russia mines more gold each year than all but 2 nations and more platinum/diamonds than all but 1 other nation each year…now oil at 67$ per barrel–Russia gas/oil exports even more profitable jens exports bad cheese—huge negative balance of trade like decayed amerikan master

Jens Holm

I would say they did most of it already under the Russian collapse. Corruption is an option too. Here Russia and Ukraine seemes to be soulmates https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/65c23018f2869b07145b88485e3f2d217d24cc1865b66d6c4f61ab863b5cb615.png

CIA perception index map from jenny : has zero correlation with reality dinky dane economy and US economy indebted, declining, riddled w homeless, extreme poverty, crime, unemployment —far better in all categories in Russia…little jens too much LSD …boyfriend upset

Trauma2000

Jens has too much MOSSAD brainwashing. They’re taught that ‘they are the chosen ones’ and everyone and everything else is inferior. Pretty funny. :)

Jens Holm

A link would be nice

cechas vodobenikov

jensy link w junkie boyfriend

FlorianGeyer

The gold is likely from the teeth of Ukranian conscripts :)

Jim Allen

Transported to The City of London, you mean.

Cromwell

All i know is it was stolen like Libyan gold by those criminals.

Jim Allen

Iraq’s, Egypt’s, Somalia’s, Sudan’s, Senegal’s, Yemen’s, Ethiopia’s, and a few other’s. US Government serves the Zionist Khazar criminal Banking Cabal at The City of London.

Trauma2000

All of Ukraines gold was put on a U.$. diplomatic flight and flown to the U.$. when PORKY was in power. Ukraines ‘gold’ is ‘safe’ in the U.$. being used to ‘prop up the FED’.

Jens Holm

Ha ha. Putin now has no pillow.

Jens Holm

Next time they have to smuggle iron or rust

cechas vodobenikov

Jenny can’t feel: dead inside—lost her boyfriend to transgengender junkie

Arch Bungle

Danish jens can’t reproduce anymore. The Danes have become neutered.

They need all those middle eastern refugees to repopulate their country and serve as a labour underclass:

The video is priceless, brilliant :)

Hasbara Hunter

Bwahahahahaha…now I finally understand Jens…..not only he lost his mind but Entire f*ckn Denmark is a collection of complete & utter Brainless Idiots…what an embarrassment….

Ole Johansen

Those privileges of diplomats must stop as its a terror threat. They can smuggle anything including materials for dirty bombs. Diplomatic border crossing and the host state right to inspect must all except plain paper. No more drugs, no more gold, no more terror and no more crime.

FlorianGeyer

Its just a ‘turf war’ between two rival Ukie gangs. :)

Hasbara Hunter

Wtf…what a Complete F*ckn Dumbass Retard UkroNazis…who is Going to Smuggle 8,000 packs of Cigarettes together with $140,000.- €67,200.-euros, 11,600 Polish zlotys & 16 KILOGRAMS OF PURE GOLD??!!!

Trauma2000

The Nazi’s are stripping Ukraine to the bone… there will be nothing left soon… and who’s to blame..? Nuland and Obomba… maiden planners… Nazi’s, Porky Porshenko et.al.

I used to be a beautiful country… wonderful industry, excellent education… when Russia managed it…. but now it is a shambles… and a disgrace. Ceed everything to Russia but let the Nazi’s move back to Poland and give them Liviv. Not much difference between Poles and Nazi’s anyway. They are both irrational racists.
