MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. Federal Drugs Control officers have wound up several dozen criminal groups engaged in wholesale supply of Afghan heroin to Russia from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, agency director Viktor Ivanov said on Monday.
"We managed to achieve a significant increase of effectiveness in tracking and eliminating international crime groups," Ivanov told a government commission developing anti-drug programs. "Amounts of seized heroin have grown substantially both in these republics and in Russia," he said.
"Activities of several dozen organized crime groups have been tracked and terminated," he added.
