Russia declares war on the Afghan drug business

64



Over the past ten years, the stakes in the Afghan war have grown to an extraordinary scale. In the nineties, the confrontation in Afghanistan was a problem for the Afghans themselves, until the “peacekeepers” from NATO occupied this country. After the invasion of foreigners, the Afghan war became a headache for the entire region. In addition to the export of violence, the threat to Afghanistan’s neighbors is drug trafficking. Afghan heroin is a serious challenge for Russia too: unfortunately, drugs from Asia are being shipped to our country.

Plague of the XXI century

Today, Afghanistan has become the largest producer of opium in the world. For comparison: last year alone, hard drugs were produced on Afghan poppy plantations twice as large as in all other countries of the world combined. The main consumers of Afghan heroin are the European Union and Russia, especially its southern regions.

From 1 in January of this year, Russia, becoming the leader of the G8, immediately declared its main priority in the fight against drug production and drug trafficking. Thus, Vladimir Putin briefly described the contours of Russian foreign policy and acknowledged that drug use is the main problem of the Russian nation. And indeed: now, when the fight against alcoholism and measures aimed at improving the demographic situation, after a decade gave the first fruits, it is time to give an adequate response to another destructive challenge - drug use.

The use of the G8, apparently, can bear fruit, since the countries that are part of this organization are quite influential and can put pressure on post-war Afghanistan. They themselves would not have done this without the Russian initiative. However, Russia, skillfully playing by the Western rules, nevertheless managed to achieve its goal, and now the G8 participants will have to act in our own interests in the coming year.

It is indicative that in 2014 the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan will take place. At the same time, during the occupation, the cultivation of opium poppy has increased several times: for example, according to the UN, over the past five years, the area under planting has increased from 193 to 209 thousand hectares. In such circumstances, the involvement of the G8 in solving the opium problem is not just a service from the West. Russia is in fact “poking its nose” at the countries responsible for the growth of drug trafficking: after all, Afghanistan has been under their control for the last 13 years, and they should be responsible for the consequences of the occupation.

Money does not smell

Drug use is dangerous not only because of the degradation of the nation. Giant financial flows from Russia and Europe rush to Central Asia, into the hands of militants and drug dealers. A part of this money settles in the hands of intermediaries - the mafia, which ensures the safe transportation of opium. Thus, the fight against drug trafficking is a battle for the health of the people, a fight against Islamist terror and with ordinary organized crime that has no religious or national identity.

Billions of dollars from heroin sales are spent on purchasing weapons and search for mercenaries. It is difficult to say where the Afghan financial sledgehammer will be turned after the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan. Excess money and excessive ambitions of extremist oppositionists can be the cause of some kind of military or political adventure.

It is possible that the billions received in Russia due to the sale of drugs will come back to us - but this time in the form of sponsorship to some “ideologically correct” underground like the Islamists in Dagestan or Tatarstan. However, it depends solely on the owners of the plantations.

Today, international forces in Afghanistan are fighting the Taliban, but they are completely “forgetting” (intentionally?) About the producers and sellers of opium. Interestingly, most of the plantations are located in areas where NATO patrols appear most often. The area under crops under the occupation authorities has grown 26 times! And with the Taliban, the opposite happened: the area of ​​opium poppy plantations declined 8 times. It turns out, heroin production exceeded the level of the nineties.

If the United States and its allies really wanted to defeat the Taliban, they would certainly have struck the brunt of the opium plantations. Then it would have been possible to destroy the main source of funding for the partisans, which should have led to a decrease in the level of resistance. But, judging by the fact that the drug trade in Afghanistan is booming, the victory over the Taliban is not a priority goal of NATO. The bloc pursues some unofficial goals, practically unrelated to "democratization" and "the fight against terrorism."

The increase in drug production coincides surprisingly with the increase in the number of occupying troops. While there were few foreigners, there were practically no lands planted with opium poppy; but now, especially after the past few years, when NATO troops arrived in the country in tens of thousands, heroin production has become the basis of the Afghan economy. At the same time, most of the drugs are exported.

"Rainbow-2"

Since Afghanistan is the largest sponsor of terrorism and organized crime in Central Asia, and the US is doing nothing, Russia itself must deal with the opium threat. In addition to attracting the G8, which is unlikely to help us in the difficult struggle against drug trafficking, a plan for the elimination of Afghan opium plantations was developed by Russian specialists.

The plan proposed by the specialists is called “Rainbow-2” and contains several specific recommendations aimed at the destruction of the Afghan drug business.

The first point of the plan is to declare trafficking in Afghan heroin a world threat. This will help many states unite efforts and coordinate their actions. The second point is the development of the infrastructure of Afghanistan, especially the electrification of the country. Thanks to such actions, at least two million jobs must be created: for the construction work, it is not necessary to have high qualifications, so that uneducated Afghans will cope with road construction and wiring of power lines.

The third point is the actual elimination of opium crops. Theoretically, when jobs are created, Afghans will no longer need to hire laborers to process plantations. The salary on construction sites will probably be higher than the mere pennies that an ordinary worker receives - all profits go to the owners of the poppy fields, and not to those people who are engaged in the production of heroin.

The fourth point of the plan provides for the fight against these hosts, or, as the authors of the plan called them in English manners, “landlords”. It is necessary to keep cadastral registration of the lands of Afghanistan for better control over the use of farmland, and the owners of poppy plantations should be included in the UN sanctions list.

The fifth point - to oblige NATO troops to destroy opium crops - certainly will not work. There is very little time left for the withdrawal of the foreign contingent, although during all the years of the occupation the United States has done almost nothing to combat the manufacture of drugs.

The sixth point is cooperation of the Russian, Afghan, American and other intelligence services. As planned, intelligence agencies are obliged to provide each other with operational information about the location of drug labs and poppy plantations, as well as about people involved in the drug business.

Finally, the seventh point is the training of drug police Russian and Western instructors. To implement this plan is supposed to involve the Russia-NATO Council.

The Rainbow 2 plan could become the basis for the formation of a large-format international anti-drug coalition, but it was sabotaged in the West. The fight against drug trafficking is not part of the US plans; the task of Washington at the current stage is to legitimize its military bases in Afghanistan. The States are not interested in supporting Russian plans, because Afghan heroin does not enter the American market!

Well, attracting the G8 to the implementation of the Rainbow-2 plan is a worthy and legitimate answer to Western politicians. They didn’t want to work voluntarily - they will have to support Russia in the framework of a legal international organization that Moscow is heading this year.

It is not known what will happen in 2015, however, thanks to the brilliant achievement of Russian diplomacy, 2014 can be a worthy start to the international struggle against the transnational drug business.

      The author of the article seems to be out of breath, otherwise how can I explain this:
      "Pri talibah the opposite happened: the area of ​​opium poppy plantations decreased by 8 times."
      and then:
      "If the United States and its allies really wanted to win Taliban, then they would certainly have dealt the main blow precisely to the opium plantations. Then it would have been possible to destroy the main source of funding for the partisans, which should have led to a decrease in the level of resistance "

    It is interesting who and by what means will carry out the electrification of Afghanistan and the development of its infrastructure; Westerners do not need this in FIG. We already somehow built there roads, factories, kindergartens, etc., but it turned out somehow later.

We already have one good donor region, if we sponsor Afghanistan, we’ll break it. However, you can try to raise electricity tariffs or oblige the population to make an advance payment, even let them lend to Afghanistan.

    The Rainbow-2 plan could become the basis for the formation of a large-format international anti-drug coalition, but it was sabotaged in the West. The fight against drug trafficking is not part of the US plans; Washington's task at the current stage is to legitimize its military bases in Afghanistan. What else can we talk about then. We need to look for allies in the fight against Afghan heroin and send drones there, and let the Afghan authorities give out the coordinates.

        It is easier to walk through the defoliants on the converted IL-78 (tanker) defoliants are now developed, which act selectively, destroy poppy, and are harmless to wheat. Il will get it anywhere, not only the north of Afghanistan, but the dryers will be covered just in case, then, you can also send a tanker to the company.

      You can’t do this. Bacteria have the ability to mutate on their own and when the food runs out for them, an unpredictable mutation is possible and they will start to eat wheat for example or something else.

    Paragraphs 1–7 are empty declarations. International cooperation in the fight against drug trafficking will not hurt anyone. And methods of real combating Afghan drugs should include the use of defoliants and the destruction of Gypsy drug traffickers, of course, along with other measures.

    There is nothing to blame on the mirror if the mug is crooked. Demand creates supply. What are we all looking for enemies around? Creating a million jobs in Afghanistan? Right now! Sold the drug in Russia. 20 years of camps! Organized a sale. To the wall! Enemy of the people. We need to create a million jobs! We need to build roads and pull power lines. We need to educate and teach children. No demand - no supply! The law of a market economy. No one will smack his nose.

It is easier to grow poppy than to plow at a construction site. Why not burn all their fields with napalm so that nothing grows there for 20 years.

    well the same nonsense.

    I’m not trying to shield NATO members, but it’s naive, or maybe they’re trying to flog nonsense at us right now that they fought drugs under the Taliban.

    Harvest of opium fell only once in 2000-2001, and when the Taliban were paid to develop agriculture, but at the same time they continued to export the old crop.

    In the 80s, the harvest of opium grew and the Soviet army could not stop it, but it was even more incapable of fighting. But the last 3 years, the crop is falling.

    I’ll sort out the links after work, but anyone interested can search for UN reports on Afghanistan themselves. In this country, the collection and export of drug commissars began in the late 70s and actually continues at the same level.

    Hope for the Taliban? Do not even think. Since 1996, they have been in power at all, their conscience did not torment.

    Absolute rubbish. As long as the border with Central Asia is open, while Tajiks and Uzbeks with Kyrgyz drive free wagons with fruit, and not only while our Federal Drug Control Service is called the State Drug Commission for their eyes, no hypothetical plans will work. For example, China is now investing heavily in Afghanistan’s infrastructure, which has no effect on poppy cultivation. Destroying crops in the presence of crowds who want to grow poppy is also useless, it’s not wheat you need to take care of, it’s a weed that grows itself.
    In the end, heroin is yesterday. The evolution of the drug trade! No plantations with bearded guards, no secret factories in the mounds, no secret caravans with guards and bribes to border guards ... Russian Post! Order from China and sell, 100% addiction, low prices, with a change in the formula, the absence of criminal liability ... Who needs this heroin now?
    China has become the main supplier of drugs to Russia, but you can’t talk about this problem, silent, is China our friend in the fight against the United States, can youth be sacrificed for this?
    For the uninitiated, on YouTube "dude under the salt", so many videos have been posted ... This is our Chinese comrades helping us.

    Putin didn’t offer to find the fields from the plane. It’s none of his business. To bring troops into the Afghan-sdes is twofold. The Afghans themselves are waiting for us. I don’t know the link, but it was six months ago. They respect the Russians. As warriors. "If the Russians would supply us weapons, after his departure, there would have been no Taliban and 11/XNUMX.

    Americans will not allow to tear up your flower garden!
    Fiction. Millions of rubles will go to support the Mujahideen. And although what difference does it make, either to support Afghanistan or to the bottomless pockets of thieves-managers of Russia ........
    It would be a wish for a long time and sprayed and burned everything ... the leaders of the drug lords were shot for violation of Sharia.
    The United States is already opening new markets for heroin .... They started to fool around with US military jets, it made it profitable, and you can make a lot of money and gentiles .......

    Strengthen customs control, block supply channels, eliminate key figures!
    To tighten the legislation of the Russian Federation regarding illegal drug trafficking. plant small hucksters for 20 years; Democratically shoot large ones! addicts to forced treatment through occupational therapy!
    Let them boil in their drug shit

    I read it.

    The author would only shove our common problem onto someone. And if you shove it is not a sin and distort.

    "In the XNUMXs, the confrontation in Afghanistan was a problem for the Afghans themselves, until NATO 'peacekeepers" occupied the country. After the invasion of foreigners, the Afghan war became a headache for the entire region. In addition to exporting violence, drug trafficking poses a threat to Afghanistan's neighbors. "

    First, NATO troops entered Afghanistan not to destroy poppy crops, but to defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda. They completed the task - they drove the Taliban into the mountains, Al Qaeda underground. And at the moment, these troops are not interfering in the affairs of the government of Afghanistan. The fight against opium crops is solely the prerogative of the Afghan government of Karzai. It is from this government that demand, if it does not fight, then has its own interest.

    Secondly, Afghanistan’s poppy crops have always been a headache in the region. From time to time, the area under crops has decreased, then increased, but has always been. When the Taliban fought with the Afghan government of Najibula, they did their utmost to help the peasants grow poppy, as the Taliban needed money and they received it selling heroin. When the Taliban took power, they began to fight with crops by medieval methods - they caught a chopped off hand, the second time they chopped off a head. But such methods can not afford the current government of Afghanistan. Now the Taliban are again supporting poppy cultivation, as they again need money to fight for power.

    The third. The problem for US is not that poppy is grown in Afghanistan, it is the problem of the Afghan government, and our problem is DRUG TRAFFIC. Yes, even if they take at least three poppy crops a year in Afghanistan, the main thing is to stop drug trafficking and put up barriers on the route of heroin supplies to Central Asia and Russia. And what needs to be done for this? Transferring the shooter to someone across the river and across the ocean is unproductive and essentially useless. No one will fight our drug trafficking except ourselves.

    And to do this, from the point of view of civilization and the legal side, we need quite a bit.

    THIS IS FOLLOWING THE NORMAL WORK OF THE BURN. SERVICE, CUSTOMS SERVICE AND SECRET SERVICES.

    All. And there, at least sow Afghan poppy seeds forty times forty times. They will seize all heroin on the borders of the CIS and catch carriers, so the Afghan sowers, of course, will not stop sowing right away, but they will direct their flows along other routes to other countries.

    And then, our special services do not fulfill their direct duties, they pass heroin into the countries, and we point fingers at some uncles - Here they are striped bastards, and we have nothing to do with it, so it's a free application. There will be a spectacular and effective barrier at our borders, so the Afghan sowers will sprinkle their kilogram of bread with ten kilograms of poppy, because there will be nowhere to go.

    For scarecrows. And the Russians should not push everything to the services of Central Asia. If the services of Russia would work well, then all the Afghan heroin would settle in Central Asia, and would not go mostly to Russia.

    For information; The Chairman of the Committee on the fight against drug trafficking and drug trafficking control of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan is General Vyborov Anatoly Nikolaevich.

      Dear, you confuse cause and effect relationships! First poppy, then traffic, and not vice versa! Therefore, we must fight with the cause, and not with the effect (although we must also wage a fierce struggle with drug trafficking and distribution and consumption)!

        Logically, of course it is. And this is if at home, for example, harass hemp of the Chui valley.

        BUT. Afghan is not an internal territory. What troops of Russia and Kazakhstan to enter there? So once it was that again in the same deafness. Then, together with the poppy problem, the PROBLEM of large human losses will arise. Two problems will be instead of one. And you can’t force NATO troops to plow crops at the root with oblique and defoliants from planes. They need it, they are going home.

        Therefore, in this situation, the easiest and cheapest way is to make specialized services work as they should. Put a barrier at the borders. And then let the Afghan drug lords have a headache, where to send drugs. And in agriculture there is a single law - overproduction automatically reduces the area of ​​crops.

        Something like that Dear.

        I meant that this is a technical problem, the conductor is somehow confusing. But lately, given. that a technical problem cannot be permanent, I am inclined to assume that these are admins or moderators, God will sort them out, they change the checkbox for me. Type do not agree with some of my comments, so they stick "labels".

    Opiate narcotics - they are quiet, do not touch anyone, not violent.
    Violent and dangerous drugs - from dissociatives, chemistry, screw and other synthetics.
    However, both types of nariks are extremely dangerous during withdrawal.

    It would not happen that the fight against poppy plantations will cause a rise in prices for gerych at hucksters, as a result, all chemicals and rubbish will be pushed under the guise of gerych, and the drug will be doubly dangerous and inadequate. Ultimately, this will lead to a surge in crime.

    All points of sale in the cities are under the cops, it’s simply impossible to not know about them, ads for chemistry are written quite calmly on fences and walls of the houses, the drug’s counter-propaganda on TV and radio is almost turned off, and our managers are worried about Afghanistan, they are already sick of their worries about his people and strangers.

    I can tell you what to do, but everyone knows this very well - to make a normal, full-fledged border between Russia and Kazakhstan, with a "fence" and a full-scale check. Everything else is just a grind of beautiful words. Nobody will allow to simply control Afghanistan and sow it with money and flowers.

      It is possible and such, but then we must forget about the CU and the EurAsEC, about integration into a single economic space. It will be difficult for China and the European Union alone.

      It is much easier to get the specialized services of both states to do their job as they should. To stop drug trafficking is not necessarily a fence, and there are holes in any fence. And without a fence, you can stop the thread if services specialized to deal with this thread will work fine.

        Well then, you need to choose what we need. For everything else is just an empty talking room. Of course, one can hope for a bright future in which TS border guards courageously stand in the path of drug trafficking, you can invest money in it, build borders with it, teach border guards and drug police, but this is not a matter of the present time, but what distant prospects.

        It is much easier to get the specialized services of both states to do their job as they should. To stop drug trafficking is not necessarily a fence, and there are holes in any fence.

        As long as the border is a continuous hole, you can force the services to hunt as you wish. They will do it, they will report, they will report on successes, but alas, there will be little real sense. For the nuances of both general and purely local a lot.
        Here recently information slipped through, as the CIA decided in the early 2000s to fight terrorism by means of in-depth immersion in the environment and introducing its people into terrorist organizations. They dumped a lot of dough, and now they are despairing - the money has been spent, but there are no results.

          The fence will not help, and there is none at other borders of other countries. First of all, people are operatives, agents. And customs should give good without bribe. Then technical support for tracking abroad.

    Russia declares war on the Afghan drug business

    The first point of the plan is to declare the trade in Afghan heroin a global threat.

    The first point of the plan is to introduce a VISA MODE with the countries of Central Asia.
    All the rest of Vladimir Obeshalkin's chatter is irrelevant. As well as the pathetic grumbling of jingoistic patriots about the "intrigues of the USA"
    Thus, Vladimir Putin outlined the contours of Russian foreign policy and acknowledged that drug use is the main problem of the Russian nation.

    DUSHANBE, 1 Oct. 2013 g. - RIA Novosti, Lydia Isamova. The agreement between the Republic of Tajikistan and the Russian Federation on the procedure for the stay of Tajik citizens in the Russian Federation, signed on February 8 of 2013, was ratified on Tuesday by deputies of the lower house of the Tajik parliament.
    According to this document, which was submitted to the deputies by the head of the migration service of Tajikistan Safiallo Devonaev, the length of stay of Tajik citizens in Russia without registration is extended from the current seven days to 15.


    And what? Conveniently! He threw off the powder - and drove home without too much haste

    DENPASAR (Indonesia), 8 Oct - RIA News. The visa regime will only repel partners in the CIS, and not bring them closer, said Russian President Vladimir Putintalking about migration issues.

    while 84% of Russian citizens support the introduction of a visa regime with CIS countries.

    [Sixth point - cooperation between Russian, Afghan, American and other intelligence services]

    Such cooperation means the failure of any event, as well as the endless coordination of actions, sabotage and information trading, found with whom to cooperate.

    There is every reason for the physical elimination of the criminal community, the main means of existence of which is the production and sale of drugs and which is called Afghanistan. It is useless to discuss problems with those who live according to the laws of the Middle Ages.

    The easiest way to deal with poppy crops is to spray defoliants. To set the conditions for the leadership of Afghanistan, or they themselves will solve this problem, or we will solve it.

    I've read that the entire world trade in opium is controlled by the richest family clans in America and England right up to their queen, in the 19th century. the Chinese tried to fight - they got "opium wars" ... so what kind of fight can they be called upon? Will they fight themselves? In general, napalm, defoliants, futile power plants, all this, they will never be allowed to do this, to anyone. Therefore, all that remains is to reduce demand, promote a healthy lifestyle, create sports schools, stadiums, raise children and employ young people.
