Russian border guards confiscated more than three tons of drugs along the Tajik-Afghan border last year
Russian border guards confiscated more than three tons of drugs (including over two tons of heroin) along the Tajik-Afghan border last year. This was disclosed to RIA Novosti today at the press service of the Russian Federal Security Service's Tajik border-control department. According to the agency's source, Russian border guards found 46 arms-and-ammunition caches, subsequently confiscating 27 firearms, as well as more than 43,600 rounds of ammo (including 1,445 tank-gun shells, 757 mines and 1,466 rocket-launcher rounds). Moreover, Russian border guards detained 297 border violators, also preventing 57 border-violation attempts, the source went on to say. A record-breaking $334,000 sum was confiscated from violators for the first time ever, the agency's interlocutor added. The situation on the Tajik-Afghan border remained involved last year; consequently, Russian border-control units were placed on Red Alert 27 times (258 days, all told). Among other things, Russian border guards will have to transfer various sectors of the Tajik-Afghan border now being controlled by the Moscow and Pyandzh units under the jurisdiction of the Tajik Republic's state border-control committee over the 2005 period. The Russian FSB's Tajik border-control department will also be reorganized into a border-control task force. These are perceived as top-priority tasks of the 2005 period.
