The director of Russia's Federal Drug Control Service says the use of Afghan heroin has killed at least 500,000 Russian citizens in the past 13 years.
Viktor Ivanov made the comment at an international antidrug conference in Moscow on May 15.
He said there had been more than 1 million deaths in the whole of Eurasia caused by the use of Afghan heroin since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001.
Ivanov said the "intense transit" of drug products from Afghanistan is estimated at some $100 billion a year, contributing to instability and violence in the region.
Afghan heroin is routinely smuggled into Russia through Central Asia.
Ivanov has repeatedly criticized NATO and the United States for not doing enough to fight drug trafficking in Afghanistan.
Based on reporting by Interfax
i'm sure Russian official knows this level of trafficking doesn't happen without government complicity.
American troups have been guarding Afghan poppy fields. What no one dare says is that under Obama the poppy production went through the roof. The world is being flooded with pure, cheap heroin.
How much of the heroin profit goes to the White House
to fund new terrorism against Americans and other
free peoples around the world?

Fight? We thought you meant help them?!.../s
Benghazi, Syria, Egypt, Libya, are all examples of Obama using US military, money, and weapons in support of Muslim Brotherhood backed regimes.
Famed author Seymour Hersh, explains how Obama has used the US military to support Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, who are essentially heroin cartel.
The Ukraine is rumored to be a dispute between Soros and Putin of the strategically located nation the runs drugs into EU from Russia. Soros was setting his political puppets, and Putin wouldn’t have it.
This 2007 article explains a little about the drug problem in Ukraine.
It’s actually going to Soros, and Fat Cat bankers. Buying presidents is profitable. The drug trade is estimated to be a $3 TRILLION cash business. That’s more than the GDP of most nations, and without the overhead.
The only problem are the peasants are going to go to pot. Russia, China, Iran have serious drug problems. That along with dangerous crime levels is our future.
This is a great article that explains a lot of it.
Should have nuked the poppy fields while we had the chance.
Legalize drugs in old-folks homes(under medical supervision). Good way to go.
The hospitals will gladly euthanize anyone as long they have permission.
In Miami we were asked if we wanted to end my father in life after he had a stroke. I think the trrm “quality of life”, how ironic. We are Catholics, not an option. I would hate to be the ones having to make that decision. Some doctors are sick freaks as farmas I’m concerned.
The Culture of Death is clearly in control. Satan has taken the wheel and it’s going to get rough.
I’m amazed that so many politicians in American government are willing to throw their own citizens under the bus.
Families are being destroyed, mothers are crying, children are abandoned and abused. I’m not happy about what is going at all.
Pray for your country friends and,take care of your families.
Sorry for all the typos I have a baby on top of me, in a plane, and using a small ipad. :)
In the aftermath of the 21 August attack Obama ordered the Pentagon to draw up targets for bombing. Early in the process, the former intelligence official said, the White House rejected 35 target sets provided by the joint chiefs of staff as being insufficiently painful to the Assad regime. The original targets included only military sites and nothing by way of civilian infrastructure. Under White House pressure, the US attack plan evolved into a monster strike: two wings of B-52 bombers were shifted to airbases close to Syria, and navy submarines and ships equipped with Tomahawk missiles were deployed. Every day the target list was getting longer, the former intelligence official told me. The Pentagon planners said we cant use only Tomahawks to strike at Syrias missile sites because their warheads are buried too far below ground, so the two B-52 air wings with two-thousand pound bombs were assigned to the mission. Then well need standby search-and-rescue teams to recover downed pilots and drones for target selection. It became huge. The new target list was meant to completely eradicate any military capabilities Assad had, the former intelligence official said. The core targets included electric power grids, oil and gas depots, all known logistic and weapons depots, all known command and control facilities, and all known military and intelligence buildings.
That heroin could also end up here. I hope we didn't turn a blind eye to that.
That's a dedicated Freeper. You deserve a reward.
Once again the US cedes the moral high ground.
Can a USAF freep confirm for me that a modern USAF operational “wing” of bombers would be about 60, and that two B-52 bomber wings would be about 120 a/c...?
Afghan heroin=500,000 fatalities
Russian vodka= 40,000,000 fatalities
That's pretty good, I always have to fall back on the cheap scotch excuse.
Soviet state 60,000,000 fatalities.
