"Plastic pipe with diameter of 100 mm was discovered 25 meters away from the border between Ukrainian village of Pletenivka and Russian village of Shebekino. It was laid at the depth of 1 meter and was designed for pumping fuel by smugglers. Engineering machinery was used to remove the pipe,” the official reported. Law enforcement officers are looking for persons who conducted illegal activities. "Smugglers had already tried to lay the pipeline in this border zone about a year ago," noted the border patrol representative.
