The plane arrived in the capital of Poland with help from China, which stopped in Kazakhstan, namely, Almaty for refueling. As a result, some Polish bloggers have suggested that part of the cargo may have been stolen in Kazakhstan because they had not counted 154 tons. In particular, this is reported by EurAsia Daily portal.

The Mriya jet arrived in Almaty from Ukraine on April 12 to refuel and head to China, Almaty International Airport said. Then, in a similar manner, the ship was in transit from the Celestial Empire to Poland on April 14.

Each time, a driver was offloaded from the boat's side to tow the plane to a parking lot.

The airport emphasized that it was not possible to unload the contents of the flight without notice or permission, even in theory: at the opening of the bow section, crew members, including the captain, who is personally responsible for the cargo, were present.

Border guards and customs officers were also present. It is noted that parking lots are under constant video surveillance and the records from cameras are stored for a month.

In general, the information about the cargo theft spread was called fake. In addition, the airport drew attention to the fact that Polish bloggers had miscalculated their calculations.

The maximum weight that this aircraft can lift is equivalent to 250 tons. An unknown author in Poland wondered why only 96 tons arrived instead of the 250 tons.

The airport clarified: the author did not take into account that China had sent most of the masks, overalls, and the like to Poland. This cargo occupies a lot of space, but weighs much less.
