In the Amur Region, customs officers stopped the illegal export of mammoth tusks. They tried to send the party to China.

As EastRussia was informed in Daknevostochny customs, mammoth tusks were found on a Russian ship at the Blagoveshchensk - Heihe checkpoint. The prohibited cargo was in a container. However, when declaring, the Russian company did not provide confirming obligations for their re-import.

The tusks weighed more than 108 kilograms, the market value was about 250 thousand rubles. At the same time, mammoth tusks are cultural values ​​of special importance, therefore, for their export, documents confirming the return import at a certain time are required.

An administrative case was initiated against the Russian company for non-declaration or inaccurate declaration of goods. The tusks themselves are in a temporary storage warehouse.
