15 Belorussian Smugglers

Belorussian Smugglers

Posted on March 1, 2013 by tim

Having price tag differences of more than 400% between the non European Union Belarus and the European Union Lithuania makes people do lots of tricks in the hope of smuggling goods from one country to the other. Like the ones you see in these pics. They say that in both Belarus and Lithuania lots of garages offer the service of installing hidden compartments anywhere in the car, from the bumper to the dashboard.

    What do they use to discover the contrabands? Nicotine sniffing dogs?

  2. YJ says:

    400% percent difference is probably why some of the EU zone countries is barely hanging on.

  3. Dan says:

    Who would smuggle Pall Malls. Just saying.

    Looks like Krystal hamburgers in that bumper.

    ..i know that its never too late to stop smoking. Some others should benefit to realize this simple fact.

    When you have to go through this much trouble to smoke… maybe its time to find something stronger.

    As a Lithuanian, i would like to say that for every pack of cigarettes smuggled in is replaced by 5 to 10 masses of ejaculates smuggled back into Belarus… the “tourist” hotels, hostels, and apartments near “Akropolis” are filled with Belarussian ladies on the weekend.

    Wow, now THAT is what I would call a smuggling haul in that tire! Crap, I guess when you’re talking about that kind of a price difference it could end up meaning the difference between life and death when it comes to food. How could I say I’d do anything different if a mile down the road I could buy flour for $5.00 but here it costs me $20.00? Not to mention prices in Europe are generally higher than the US for most things to begin with, right? I could very well be wrong but I thought that the US had lower prices in general than most other countries except Japan, etc. Who knows? Anyway, some of that is pretty damned ingenious if you ask me.

    In Poland it’s very easy to get Belarussian cigs and they’re very cheap!!! Know the brand ‘Fest’? They’re cool :D

    What are the white packet with the red circle cigarettes called? We’ve been buying them under the counter in Bristol UK for a while (though I’ve quit smoking now).
