During the searches at the Odesa Customs, the State Bureau of Investigation (DBR) found a Mi-2 multi-purpose helicopter hidden in a shipping container since 2007, DBR reports.

DBR says it continues the audit of 133 maritime shipping containers hidden from customs clearance at the Odesa Customs. During the inspection of one of the containers, the DBR officers discovered a Mi-2 multi-purpose helicopter. The Agency is establishing the helicopter’s owners and how it ended up in the container.

“A legal assessment will also be given to the actions of the customs officials who, amid Russia’s full-scale aggression against Ukraine, did not take any steps to timely clear the helicopter,” DBR says.

Currently, the investigators have confiscated the helicopter and are resolving the issue of transferring it to the Armed Forces’ needs.
