WARSAW, September 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Polish customs officers have detained a cargo of bulletproof vests that were allegedly meant for the Ukrainian army in the city of Olszyna on the border with Germany, spokesman for the Zielona Gуra city district prosecutor’s office Jacek Busko said on Wednesday.
He told ITAR-TASS the Polish Internal Security Agency and local prosecutor’s office have taken an interest in this case. “The fact of the transportation of bulletproof vests without specific permission from Germany to Poland is being investigated,” he said.
The detained cargo contains 200 bulletproof vests made in the 1990s to the total value of €50,000. They were bought in Germany by the Ukrainian diaspora.
The Polish prosecutor’s office says the cargo’s destination was Lithuania. However, according to unofficial information of local media, the bulletproof vests may be intended for the Ukrainian army.
According to Polish legislation, only certified shops are allowed to sell bulletproof vests in the country. Polish legislation prohibits selling or transferring bulletproof vests.
Poland had previously arrested cargoes of bulletproof vests for the Ukrainian army.
