Border

For many inhabitants of the Polish and Ukrainian borderland the border crossing point is the core, or the only source of income.Day to day, both Poles and Ukrainians are queuing for long hours to bring in oil, alcohol and cigarettes on the UE territory. Due to the price discrepancies, the latter are usually being sold to crime organizations who disseminate the articles in the whole community. Some of those who are crossing the border are taking the risk and smuggle things. Indeed, every day custom officers confiscate thousands of cigarette packages hidden in cars.
