NOVO OGAREVO, March 11 (Itar-Tass) – The Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) works effectively but there is still much to be done, President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with FSKN chief Viktor Ivanov on Monday, March 11.
“The service was originally established as part of the Tax Police’s reorganisation, and my hope then was to form a professional nucleus of people who would start working quickly and effectively in this new area,” Putin said.
“Overall this objective has succeeded, but the danger remains great and the service still has very serious work ahead,” the president said. “We have to protect our people from the drugs threat and do even more than has been the case so far.”
“We are in the process of implementing earlier decisions that will optimise the service,” Ivanov said.
The FSKN marked its 10th anniversary on March 11.
