MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Research centers of Great Britain and the US are studying the possibility of the use of drugs for ‘color revolutions’ and mass unrest, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service Viktor Ivanov said on Tuesday.
If harder elements are added to drugs, they get toxic features producing a strong effect. It could cause a very strong passionate reaction if used among the young people, he said citing Russian poet, literary critic and traveler Nikolai Gumilyov. "This can be practiced in ‘color revolutions’," Ivanov added.
Ivanov said this method was used during Maidan riots in Ukraine. "Methadone therapy was used on Maidan, it was widely used in Ukraine and scores of methadone were spread among drug users as a matter of fact legally," he continued. "These were the people used as cannon fodder on Maidan," he noted.
At the moment some countries are studying the use of drugs in mass riots.
"Research centers in Great Britain, in the US, in particular, study the possible use of drugs in the interests of ‘color revolutions’ and to generate mass unrest for protection of their population," Ivanov added.
