MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Special operations in Russian sea ports have detected more than 6,000 crimes associated with illegal drugs and firearms traffic, the Federal Drugs Control Service (FSKN) told TASS.

Several tons of drugs were seized from dealers during a 15-day operation in Russia’s surrounding sea basins. Military police were involved this year, blocking trafficking from Europe, North Africa, South-east and Central Asia to Russia.

"After examining several thousand transport units and vessels, 245 firearms and 16,000 pieces of ammunition were seized," the service added.

Similar operations have been held since 2010, aimed at detecting drug crimes and arms smuggling. Since that year, operations have disclosed nearly 30,000 cases.
