It’s interesting indeed – here’s a shortage of vitally important for population product, and among first things authorities do, is fighting smuggling. Smuggled or not, delivered product is to ease deficit, to help people in need. Eliminate deficit and then fight smuggling, until then your, governmental, main task and obligation, is to help your own people, is it not so?
