In the Moscow region, employees of the Federal Service for the Control of Drug Trafficking detained a wagon with 10 tons of so-called “dirty poppy”.
According to security officials, the supply of opiates to Russia was smuggled out of Europe. According to some information, the blocked channel of drug traffic could be the largest in the country.
At the moment, the examination of the seized goods continues, the truck and the driver are arrested.
After the “discovery”, the head of the Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov, proposed introducing state regulation of poppy turnover. The head of the department noted that in Russia it was necessary to set up their own production of poppy, in order to minimize the possibility of importing the “potion”.
