The Russian tried to send to the US a radio station developed for the Ministry of Defense

An unusual parcel was encountered by employees of the regional customs in Kaluga, and, in accordance with the law, turned to law enforcement agencies for help.

In April 2019, a radio station was found in one of the mail parcels whose final address was listed in the United States. It is reported REN TV.

After a request from law enforcement to the Ministry of Defense, it became known that the parcel contained the R-853V1 radio station developed for the Russian military.

R-853V1 - a portable radio station that is included in aircraft equipment. The equipment is designed to provide communication with airborne radio stations.

After receiving information from the military, the sender of the parcel was detained and criminal proceedings were instituted against him.

In the comments, media readers note that the radio station is old enough and can be easily purchased on the Avito website:

However, the users themselves note that the law is the law, and any law-abiding citizen, before sending something reminiscent of military equipment to the United States, must click in his head that for such an act you can get a very real and very long period of time related to imprisonment.

    It is not a fact that the woodpecker simply does not know the law, is far from this topic. Now a lot of things are for sale. At Directlot, for example, the TKN-1S tank night-vision device (not a specialist, not Czech or Polish aware) and the PNV-57 night-vision device from the same series are on sale now, who are ready to say without a hitch that what falls under the article and what not? I saw an artillery sight on sale and a lot of different things. The laws we have are peculiar, you can get into it by ignorance.

        That's exactly how lucky .... many do not even realize that such laws exist. Like that farmer with a GPS tracker (from the link above). Perhaps digitalization will help. You send a parcel, and you get a hint, this product is not subject to ... and so on. In the meantime, you need to rely only on yourself, in general, study, study and study again. Somewhere I already heard it. recourse laughing laughing laughing

      Ignorance of the law is not an excuse

      "Woodpeckers" who decided to take a "step to the left, a step to the right" away from the "beaten track" should first familiarize themselves with the legislation.

      There is a classic of the genre: ignorance of the law does not exempt from liability. You can add - the lack of brains also does not exempt from liability.

    Well done, what did you catch ... Now you need to find out where this type of military radio station came from and when it was recruited by the United States ... After it was sent to Solikamsk for life, with the confiscation of property, all those guilty of stealing military equipment and selling it to a potential enemy RF ...

    Such an operation was thwarted! This is a walkie-talkie (radio beacon) aiming aircraft at a target: bombers or with a landing. Itself is useless without a code card. The gunner had long been legalized in the United States, the walkie-talkie was out of order, asked to send a new one, and a bummer came out. Sometimes fool vigilance is only to the detriment.

    And they said, "in the nineties we took out things like that in our suitcases." wassat
    Here are the advisers, "advised." lol
    It was necessary to colorize the station in rainbow colors and attach a certificate from the museum (or from the landfill) - everything would be fine.

    With unusual the parcel collided customs officers in Kaluga, and, in accordance with the law, turned to law enforcement for help.

    As I understand it, at the RUSSIAN MAIL there were no questions about the package ... good-natured people ... And on the other hand, Baba Manya thought, if it is being sold on AUTO, then everything is fine ...

    The seller writes:

    The radio is in working condition and works great both on reception and transmission. Under factory seals, it has never been opened before.
    Suggest for use as intended, and for flight simulators, experiments and experiments, photos, videos and filming, as well as for surroundings, quests and military-patriotic installations. I can send in any direction after payment both by cargo campaigns and by Russian post.

    On the other hand, according to the Rules of the RUSSIAN MAIL, this radio station does not fall under the prohibited items for sending via RUSSIAN MAIL / AIR MAIL.
    package-rules # forbiddenitems

    This product does not represent any secret to the empirialists, especially since it was supplied all over the world ...
    The manufacturer JSC Vladimirsky plant "Electropribor" does not hide the performance characteristics of its products.

      Mail has its own rules. They would just not have sent any explosive and poisonous investments. But you cannot put a representative of the FSB in each post office.

    Judging by the photos and information about the radio station, there is clearly an error in the article on the Internet, "designed for Russians" should be replaced with "developed for Soviet".
