HAVANA, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Drug traffic to European countries and Russia via Western and Northern Africa is on the rise, director of Russia’s anti-drug authority Viktor Ivanov said on Monday after the signing of an agreement on anti-drug cooperation with Guyana.
“If some ten years ago cocaine was a sort of exotic drug in Russia now the cocaine traffic in Russia nears three tons,” Ivanov said. “It is a serious threat, that is why anti-drug cooperation agreements and close cooperation with countries of the Western hemisphere is of practical nature for us.”
Under the agreement with Guyana, the two countries will exchange information about people or groups involved in illegal drug trafficking in order to conduct joint operations.
