MOSCOW, March 23 (Itar-Tass) — Almost 60 kilograms of Afghan heroin have been seized over the past few days in two major operations in St. Petersburg and Irkutsk. One of the operations was carried out jointly with Kyrgyz security agemcies, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov, said at a session of the service’s board on Friday.
“An operation carried out jointly with our Kyrgyz colleagues was finished in Irkutsk two days ago, and a batch of 14 kilograms of concentrated Afghan heroin was intercepted,” Ivanov said, adding that this amount is enough for 1.5 million doses.
“This was a logical result,” Ivanov stressed. “Major success has been reached in our cooperation with Kyrgyzstan,” the head of the drug control service stressed. He reminded the audience that a Russian donor program of technical assistance to the Kyrgyz State Service on Drug Control was launched in March 2011.
