The Russian customs caught today a ruthless smuggler. The stash was hidden inside a VW Caravelle that was coming from Finland back to Russia. The smuggler was carrying 99 kg of Finnish cheese!

Russia has set various import sanctions and only 5 kg of cheese is allowed. So the brave customs officials saved Russian citizens from 94 kg of illegal cheese.

The massive load of smuggled cheese set the record for customs’ cheese detection operations. The last record was 37 kg of Finnish cheese.


The cheese with red label packaging happens to be one of my favorites.
