The whole system of law enforcement bodies of the Far Eastern Federal District should oppose the spread of drugs

In Khabarovsk, under the chairmanship of Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Yury Gulyagin, an inter-ministerial operational meeting of the heads of law enforcement agencies of the Far Eastern Federal District was held

It discussed the state of the work of law enforcement agencies of the Far Eastern Federal District in the sphere of countering the illegal distribution of narcotic drugs, psychotropic and potent substances and measures to increase its effectiveness.

The meeting was attended by officials of the Office of the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern District, prosecutors of the subjects of the Russian Federation, and heads of law enforcement agencies.

Opening the meeting, Yury Gulyagin stressed that the problem of drug addiction is one of the most acute social problems in society. The Far Eastern Federal District remains one of the disadvantaged districts in the Russian Federation in terms of the prevalence of drug abuse among the population.

The main report was made by Nikolai Khromin, head of the Regional Department of the FSKN of Russia for the Khabarovsk Territory.

He noted that the spread of drug addiction and drug-related crimes in the district is due to the natural and climatic conditions that contribute to the wild growth of cannabis in its southern regions of the frontier position with the People's Republic of China, the tendency to a decrease in the population, replacing them with migrants, including from drug-prone regions. There are also many facts of seizures of synthetic drugs, psychotropic and potent substances supplied by mail channels.

In 2013, law enforcement agencies identified more than 13,1 thousand offenses in the sphere of illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic and potent substances. However, as practice shows, a significant number of crimes committed in the sphere of illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances remain unsolved. The reasons are the lack of proper organization of investigative activities, the lack of time required to carry out the necessary operational activities, poor interaction of operational and investigative units, insufficient technical and forensic support.

The issues of ensuring the legality of receiving, registering and examining reports of crimes related to illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances remain topical. The quality of pre-investigation checks remains low.

The Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, Yuri Gulyagin, drew the attention of the meeting participants that, in modern conditions, to resist drug business, effective work of all law enforcement agencies, their precise interaction, active and offensive activity of specialized services should be.

Following the meeting, a set of measures was developed aimed at increasing the effectiveness of the law enforcement agencies of the Far Eastern Federal District in combating drug trafficking.
