The article focuses on the German smugglers who transport contraband into the country and sell it on the black market. Russians have substantially increased their holdings on the black market operated by Germany. The Russians continue to utilize Germany's illegal shipping, despite the prohibition of war supplies shipment by Western countries. The low prices of smuggled items is the main reason behind the public's patronage of black market products.
