MOSCOW, February 3 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s drug control authority will offer to all of the city’s officials, police officers and their families to take drug tests, head of Moscow’s branch of the Federal Service on control of drug turnover, Lieutenant-General of the police Vyacheslav Davydov said on Friday.
“We are organizing the process now – we will offer to all of the officials, police officers and their families to undergo tests (on drug use),” he said.
This action may be a good example for schools and other educational institutions, he added.
However, the drug control authority still has to finalize the initiative with the Moscow government.
“But we hope for the support, first of all from the core departments – of education, healthcare as well as physical culture and sports,” Davydov said.
He assured that the drug control staff and their families are ready to be the first to take these tests.
