MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian narcotics squad officers seized more than 80 kilograms of highly concentrated heroin in the New Year’s eve operation dubbed Santa Claus.
Heroin had been transported by car from St. Petersburg to Moscow and the Volga River region, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov, told reporters on Tuesday.
That amount was enough to make four tons of “street” heroin, he said, adding that four kingpins had been detained in the operation overnight to January 1.
Ivanov said four tons of “street” heroin were enough to make “more than five million dozes worth some five billion roubles”.
