The State Bureau of Investigation exposed a couple who sold cars received abroad for free to the military.

This was reported in the press service of the SBI.

It is noted that the couple, under the guise of humanitarian aid, imported vehicles to Ukraine without paying customs duties and sold them to the military.

"The suspects used a charitable foundation belonging to them and had benefits during customs clearance of vehicles. But instead of handing over the cars received abroad for free, the defendants sold them to the military," the statement said.

After the sale of the cars, the so-called benefactors forged fictitious acts of acceptance and transfer about the allegedly free transfer of cars to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"On September 25, law enforcement officers exposed dealers while trying to sell three cars received free of charge in Lithuania. The couple tried to sell these cars to the military for $13,000," the SBI said.

The man has been detained.
