MOSCOW, September 20 (Itar-Tass) - Security forces incapacitated a real large drug trafficking grouping in the course of Thunder’2013 exercise of special assignment troops of the CIS Collective Security Treaty Organization /CSTO/ in Kyrgyzstan, Viktor Ivanov, the director of Russia’s federal service controlling the circulation of narcotic drugs told Itar-Tass by telephone.
CSTO units confiscated about 50 kg of opioids and about 40 kg of marijuana, he said.
