Ordered a rare phone in a foreign online store? Get a subpoena

    According to Kommersant, an inhabitant of the Ulyanovsk region who ordered a Motorola Moto G phone in a German online store was opened an administrative case for the illegal import of a phone containing encryption tools.


    In May of this year, Yevgeny Yarutkin, who lives in the Ulyanovsk region, ordered a smartphone on a German site. In Russia, this model is not for sale, and this is the most important nuance in this story. At the post office, after the parcel arrived, they refused to give the phone to Eugene, because he came with customs notice. Customs officers also could not issue it, because There is no notification for this model issued by the FSB. Having missed a month, Eugene waved his hand - they say, let the package goes back. The parcel was gone (and the buyer, according to various sources, it seems like they even returned the money), but then they called from the customs and said that an administrative case was initiated against the buyer. Now Eugene faces a fine of 1.5-2.5 thousand rubles.
