Employees of the Irkutsk customs revealed a large consignment of wood smuggling to China. According to the forged documents, the exporter exported from Russia 3,7 thousand cubic meters of sawn timber from coniferous and deciduous trees.

According to the press service of the department, the total cost of the party amounted to 31,3 million rubles. The same company with which the purchase and sale agreements were allegedly concluded was indicated as the manufacturer of lumber. Later, these documents were recognized as fictitious.

It was also established that foreign exchange earnings from timber sold to China were not received in the accounts of Russian banks. In this regard, the Irkutsk Customs opened a criminal case not only for smuggling, but also for evading the obligation to repatriate funds for the delivered goods on a particularly large scale.
