MOSCOW, August 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Results of drug police operations in the United States and Russia became much less effective than before the US imposed sanctions on Moscow and put the chief of the Russian drug watchdog on the sanction list, Russian drug control chief Viktor Ivanov said.

At the same time he voiced hope that this situation would change sooner or later.

“The US president banned drug policemen from talking to me. They do not communicate with me. I did not forbid this to my subordinates, they are talking to their partners from the US but the result is much worse,” Ivanov said.

He noted that drug police of the two countries had carried out joint special operations within the presidential working group on drugs and had found new types of drug-related crimes.

“If Barack Obama banned them from talking to us, I do not ban them [my subordinates] from speaking with them [US fellow drug policemen]. I believe that the situation will change some day. We should work together,” the Russian drug control chief added.
