lots of drugs, i won't list any here, are coming out of the countries that a here un-named government [not russia] is currently at war 'on terror' with.

the amount of drugs getting to the citizens is astronomical and it appears that law enforcement and government officials have been caught on the wrong side of the law.

the deputy head of a district police directorate in Moscow was arrested recently for planting illegal drugs on suspects.

n early February the Interior Security Department conducted a search in one of the agency’s Moscow offices and discovered various drugs, syringes, ammunition and classified documents in secret caches behind the suspended ceiling

putin had to take action ...
