BANGKOK, June 3. /TASS/. A Russian national has been detained in Thailand at the request of the Interpol National Central Bureau for Russia, a senior diplomat from the Russian Embassy to Thailand told TASS on Wednesday.
Sergey Kondratyev was put on the international wanted list in 2014. "He is accused of illegal production, sales and transfer of narcotics on a large scale," the head of the embassy’s consular department, Vladimir Sosnov said, adding that the man would shortly be deported to Russia.
In earlier remarks, Russian Ambassador to Thailand Kirill Barsky noted growing cooperation between Russian and Thai police. Alone this year, Thailand has deported seven Russian nationals at the request of the Russian side.
The ambassador said "the local authorities realize that people wanted in Russia and staying in Thailand are not only our problem. To our great satisfaction, law enforcement agencies are actively cooperating with us".
In April, the Russian Federal Drug Control Service signed a memorandum of understanding with the Thai drug control agency. The document focuses on fight against the illegal trafficking of psychotropic substances.
"A legal platform has been created, establishing a possibility to exchange sensitive information," the head of the Russian drug control service Viktor Ivanov told Tass then. He said "the memorandum envisaged the start of operational-investigative activity by one side at the request of another".
He said the Thai colleagues had received a list of some 25 wanted Russian nationals staying in Thailand.
