MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. More than $1 trillion derived from heroin sales has been invested in transnational organized crime since 2001, when the United States launched operation Enduring Freedom in response to 9/11 terrorist attacks, Russia's federal drug control service director Viktor Ivanov told a session of the State Antidrug Committee on Wednesday.
"Since the turn of the century, as humanity has been implementing millennium goals and operation Enduring Freedom was launched in 2001, Afghan heroin has killed more than one million people," Ivanov said, noting the trillion dollars funding criminal activity worldwide.
