MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The distribution of cocaine is expanding, around five tons of this drug gets to Russia annually, Russian Federal Drug Control Service head Viktor Ivanov told journalists on Tuesday.
"We see that the inflow of cocaine is growing. Of course, it is not yet comparable to heroin turnover. We assess it [cocaine turnover] at five tons that get to Russia. We jointly intercept around 0.5-1 ton, but the rest seeps through with the help of conspirational cells of the international drug cartel," Ivanov said.
