According to a report by The Times, the wife of one of Ukraine's wealthiest politicians was busted at the border and accused of trying to leave the country with nearly $30 million in cold, hard cash.
Reports state that Anastasia Kotvitska, spouse of former MP Igor Kotvitsky, was caught with $28 million, in addition to €1.3million, as she attempted to cross into Hungary.
Local outlet Obozrevatel revealed that Kotvitsky could be facing criminal charges for not announcing the money before leaving the country.

The bricks of cash were reportedly discovered packed into several suitcases by Hungarian customs officials, which would mean Kotvitska would have somehow managed to get the haul past Ukrainian border officials first; investigators are now looking into whether bribes may have been handed over.
Kotvitska's 54-year-old husband, who reportedly controls Nuclear Energy Systems of Ukraine and a number of uranium deposits, said his wife was leaving the country to give birth — but denied she was carrying the seven-figure sum.

Kotvitsky declared, "All my money is in Ukrainian banks, I did not take anything out," and then deleted his social media account. He also reportedly posted on his daughter's Instagram account and declared the story to be "fake and rumors".
Kotvitska herself, who was reportedly traveling with her mother and two Hungarian men, has not yet commented.
Seyar Khushutov, a Kyiv businessman who according to The Times uncovered the incident, said border guards were illicitly charging between 3 and 7.5 percent to turn a blind eye.
"The names of the customs officers and border guards who do this are well known in narrow circles," he told Obozrevatel.
