Russian customs disrupt smuggling of 2 kg of drugs from Peru
In Irkutsk, customs officers have seized a parcel from Peru, which contained about 2 kg of drugs.
The postal item had been sent from Peru to a resident of the Irkutsk region of Russia. The law enforcers have revealed the contraband sending as a result of investigative activities.
Inside the parcel, there were several plastic bags containing briquettes with a dark green substance of pasty consistency. They were accompanied by supporting documents, in which the sender indicated that the parcel contained 100-percent natural sulfur soap. The examination, in turn, has found that the seized substance is a narcotic drug – DMT (demythyltryptamine) – with a total weight of 1,846 grams.
As a result, a criminal case over smuggling of drugs on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 229.1 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
