Earlier, members of the MP Control inter-faction association stated that about half of all the cargo going through the Odesa customs was basically smuggled due to lowering its customs value. The lawmakers appealed to the Prosecutor General's Office regarding illegal actions on the part of acting head of the Fiscal Service in Odesa region Serhii Danilin and Head of the Odesa customs Volodymyr Perederii.
