MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Last year, Russian narcotics squad officers carried out more than 800 operations, almost 60 of them international ones, the head of the Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov, told reporters on Tuesday.
“Last year we tried to concentrate more on fight against drug supplies and increased the number of trans-regional special operations. A total of 735 operations were carried out,” Ivanov said. “We also stepped up international operations, carrying out 57 major international operations,” the official said, adding that plans were to give a boost to that activity.
He also said drug police had carried out five special operations abroad, at the approaches to Russia.
