KRASNOARMEISK (Moscow region), September 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Federal Drug Control Service will be powered with drones and new observation instruments, Service Director Viktor Ivanov said on Friday.
“We have added our orders to the state defense procurement plan. Drones will be supplied to our units, primarily those operating in the steppe and highland areas where monitoring is complicated,” Ivanov said.
The service will also be supplied with gadgets transmitting online data to its situational analysis center via satellite and intercepting communication between drug traffickers. There will be photo and video cameras for covert surveillance, too. Service officers will receive new firearms and uniforms.
Ivanov attended the first international operative-tactical exercises of the rapid reaction forces of drug control departments of CSTO member countries in the Moscow region.
