Azerbaijan’s State Customs Committee has announced that its employees prevented an attempt to smuggle tobacco products to Azerbaijan.
During the operation, the employees of the Tovuz Customs Office prevented the smuggling of 23, 000 cigarettes.
Today, cigarettes are considered the third most popular smuggling product after drugs and weapons.
Recently, retail prices of several cigarette brands have been significantly reduced in Azerbaijan. The main reason for the decline in the cigarette prices is to combat the smuggled tobacco products on the local market.
