Cocaine supply pipeline from Latin America foiled by operatives
During a joint operation, officers of the police, the FSB, and the Customs foiled a major channel for cocaine supply to Russia from Latin America.
As reported by Head of the MIA press service Irina Volk, drugs used to be sent to Russia in parcels for pensioners. Citizens of Colombia, Russia, and Venezuela were involved in the international drug ring. Parcels with cocaine were sent from Paraguay and Colombia and entered Russia through Germany.
According to Irina Volk, parcels with drugs were sent to Russian pensioners. The gang members paid them for receiving mail. The parcels contained items of household use, and the cocaine was carefully packed and disguised among the goods.
Currently, the organizers of drug trafficking have been detained and give confessions. Criminal cases into this crime have been referred to the Moscow district court and the Domodedovo district court.
Earlier, The Telegraph circulated this information. According to the publication, Patrushev brought 400 kg of flour, with which cocaine discovered in the Russian embassy in Argentina had been replaced, on his plane to Moscow.
Moscow Vice Mayor Marat Khusnullin is one of the most powerful people in the Moscow City Hall. He controls the construction market and promotes business interests of his entourage. People say that the construction market is controlled by the so-called Tatar mafia. However, it is simply Khusnullin’s family.
A criminal case under part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against two officers of the Dagestan MIA Criminal Investigation Department. It was previously reported about the detention of Head of the Dagestan MIA Criminal Investigation Department Organized Crime Investigation Division, Colonel Khaybula Ibnukhadzharov.
