MOSCOW, December 31, 1:25 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the relevant ministries and agencies during preparations for Russia’s chairmanship in the Group of Eight (G8) to pay special attention to the strengthening of the non-proliferation regime, the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking.
