Police have seized 15 kg of heroin from two drug couriers
Police have seized 15 kg of heroin from two drug couriers in the Istra district to the west of Moscow, a police spokesman said on Monday.

Traffic police and officers of the federal anti-drugs service detained a woman on Sunday who was riding as a passenger in a car on the Volokolamsk highway. A second woman was detained while leaving the Moscow Region town of Dedovsk, the spokesman said.

The suspects were detained after a tipoff from St. Petersburg that a large amount of heroin was expected to be delivered in small portions to a drugs gang in the surrounding Leningrad Region, from Central Asia via the Moscow Region.

Most of the heroin sold in Russia is smuggled into the country via Tajikistan, which shares a border with Afghanistan, the world's largest heroin producer.
