Finland Customs clear missiles shipment from Vietnam to Ukraine

Finnish Customs say it would clear a shipment of air-to-air missiles that belonged to Vietnam to its intended destination in Ukraine.
Finnish Customs says that the missile components shipment it seized in June was on its way to be serviced in Ukraine. The shipment was part of regular military cooperation protocols.
Customs said that the consignment contained surface-to-air missile guidance systems, which are classified as defense armaments in Finland.
The parts, weighing at slightly over one tonne and en route from Vietnam via Hong Kong, were confiscated on June 24 and were on their way to be repaired in Ukraine.

  1. Can anybody explains as to why Finnish customs would clear the cargo before handling a strict investigation which will take at least 6 months?
