Cops seize caviar at airbase near Moscow

Police have seized 460 kilograms of black caviar in a raid at the Chkalovskaya airbase near Moscow.

The haul was confiscated in a joint operation by personnel from the Russian Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service.

It is reported the sturgeon caviar was delivered to the Chkalovskaya military airbase by a Tu-154 plane from Khabarovsk.

During an examination of the plane's cargo section and passenger luggage, the batch was discovered in metal and plastic containers.

The materials have been sent for analysis to institute a criminal case.
