Military operation in Afghanistan did not reduce drug flows into Russia

The anti-terrorist operation in Afghanistan has not reduced the flow of drugs from that country into Russia, Minister of the Interior of Russia Boris Gryzlov said at a news conference in Astana on Friday. Boris Gryzlov who is staying in Kazakhstan for a working visit stated that the quantity of the drugs found in Russia had substantially increased compared to the same period of last year. This shows that in 2002 they have been trying to traffic a much greater amount of drugs across our frontiers.

The head of the Interior Ministry also said that a conference of Russia's top officials of the law-enforcement bodies and Kazakhstan would take place in Ust-Kamenogorsk on July 15th. According to Boris Gryzlov, the participants in it will discuss "joint actions to stem the drugs trafficking".

The theme of joint actions to stem arms smuggling and ways of concrete interaction in the struggle against international terrorism will also be discussed at the conference. As Boris Gryzlov told RIA Novosti, questions relating to illegal migration will also be discussed.

According to him, the flows of citizens from third countries going through the Kazakhstani-Russian border have substantially increased. As Boris Gryzlov noted, "the Russian-Kazakhstani border is transparent enough", and the criminal world is taking advantage of this in a bid to establish a channel for bringing illegal migrants into Russia and further to Europe.
