MOSCOW, February 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the best and most efficient anti-drug measure is to involve young people to sports activities.
“When we contended for the right to host the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup, one of my theses in conversations with the partners in FIFA and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) was the thesis of anti-drug propaganda among teenagers,” Putin said in a documentary The Philosophy of the Soft Way aired by the Russia 1 television channel.
“I put it straight: ‘We have a big problem: after the former Soviet Union collapsed, Central Asian republics are unable to restrain drug traffic. We have no normal state borders with these republics and this traffic is flooding into Russia.’”
“Involving young people in sports activities will obviously become an efficient anti-drug measure,” he stressed.
