A few hours ago, the tax police jointly with the SBU Special Operations Center under the coordination of the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) Staff conducted a raid in the gray area, eliminating a major supply chain of pro-Russian militants.

First Deputy Chairman of the State Fiscal Service Serhii Bilan wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"Today, we have blocked a major supply chain used to smuggle food, petrol and lubricants, medicines and other goods to the terrorist-controlled territory. The so-called "Ministry of Defense of the DPR" was among the key customers. It means the goods were flowing directly to militants," Bilan noted.

According to him, law enforcers have searched transshipment points and detained vehicles with goods.

As noted, over 100 people took part in the raid.

The details of the operation will be announced by direct participants at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Sept. 8.
