MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. Russia’s federal drug control service (FSKN) has briefed its US counterparts on more than one thousand drug traffickers operating in the United States.
According to a news release published on the FSKN website, FSKN detectives had gathered evidence exposing hundreds of dealers operating in the US in last summer’s large-scale anti-drug operation against a trans-national crime syndicate.
"The operation eliminated a large trans-national crime ring whose members had created a large network to mail synthetic drugs from Southeast Asia to destinations around the world, including the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and other countries," the FSKN said in the news release.
The crime network incorporated some 10,000 dealers in 47 countries, including 1,103 in the United States. Orders were accepted through on-line shops in China, which offered more than 30 types of most widely used narcotics.
"The investigation has found that about 8,000 ‘regular clients’ were registered at the drug traffickers’ websites. Since the beginning of 2011 this crime ring dispatched 5,195 drug parcels to the United States using the DHL mailing service.
