MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - Over the past three years Russia and the United States have destroyed over 24 tons of opiates in Afghanistan, director of the Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) Viktor Ivanov said on Friday.

“Since 2010 Russia and the United States have conducted anti-drug operations in Afghanistan to allow them jointly with the Afghan competent structures to destroy 24 drug laboratories and over 24 tons of opiates due to be transported to Russia,” Ivanov said.

Only six anti-drug operations in Afghanistan made it possible to destroy more heroine than Russia’s power-yielded bodies succeeded in doing this, the Russian official said.
