Illegal import of alcoholic products and medicines into the territory of Kyrgyzstan was prevented. The State Service for Combating Economic Crimes reported.

A Volvo truck with a trailer was detained at Ak-Tilek checkpoint. According to a way bill, the truck transported confectionery, spices and tires. But elite alcoholic products of various types (whiskey, beer, cognac, vodka, wine) with excise stamps of Kazakhstan, medicines of dubious origin with almost expired shelf life, chemicals for destruction of weeds and other goods without permits and supporting documents were found during inspection of the truck in its cargo compartment.
