MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Control over Drug Circulation will set up a police dog handling center in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul to train Afghan specialists, Russian drug control chief Viktor Ivanov told reporters on Wednesday.
“We have an accord with Afghanistan on this issue. A center of Russian science and culture is being restored in Kabul, expecting to host a police dog handling center at its premises,” Ivanov noted.
He noted that the fight against Afghan heroin could hardly be overestimated. “According to our reports, around half a million deserted from army and police in Afghanistan and joined gangs trafficking drugs,” he said. Ivanov noted that revenues from heroin sale were channelled particularly to fund dangerous extremist groups seeking to fuel up separatist moods in several Asian countries.
