Russia's Federal Security Services (FSB) seized 958 kg (2,204 lbs.)
Russia's Federal Security Services (FSB) seized 958 kg (2,204 lbs.) of hashish in a major drug ring crackdown, an FSB spokesman said on Wednesday.

"A large amount of narcotics with a total weight of 958 kilograms was confiscated," the spokesman told RIA Novosti, adding: "Several people have been detained, and an investigation is continuing."

Most of the heroin and hashish coming into Russia originates in Afghanistan and is then trafficked through the former Soviet republics of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Most of the drugs are then sold in Russia's largest cities, or shipped on to Europe.
