IG militants seize Afghan drug supply channels

The Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, stated during the Security Council meeting of the world organization that the militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization (IS) had managed to seize some of the channels that are used to supply Afghan drugs.

“The coalescence of criminal activities related to Afghan opiates to international terrorism remains, including in terms of strengthening its material base at the expense of drug proceeds. The situation was aggravated by the fact that, in order to gain access to new sources of financing for terrorist activities, the leadership of ISIL is trying to take control of Afghan drug trafficking. There is evidence that a group of militants from ISIL already control part of the channels for the illegal supply of drugs from the province of Badakhshan, ”the newspaper quotes him. "Sight".

Churkin stressed that the UN Security Council should carefully monitor and promptly respond to the changing drug situation in Afghanistan.

In turn, the head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Yuri Fedotov, said that last year, the share of Afghanistan in world drug trafficking amounted to 85% in the supply of opium and 77% - heroin.

“The cultivation of opium poppy and its processing is one of the main directions of economic activity in Afghanistan. The gross opium production cost is estimated at 2014 in the 2,84 year of billions of dollars and makes up the 13% of the country's GDP, ”he noted.

The fact that "this year of the conflict (in Afghanistan) has become one of the most intense," also said the special representative of the UN Secretary General in Afghanistan, Nicholas Hayes.

It is worth noting that September 1 Afghan Vice-President Abdul Rashid Dostum appealed to the Russian Federation with a request to provide the Afghan special services weapon, including airplanes, to fight the Islamic State group, which, he said, threatens not only Afghanistan, but the entire region.

    It is unfortunate that on the borders of Russia (and the border states (Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, ...)) it is beneficial for someone not to fight drug trafficking very much and one of our “steering” and high-ranking officials is covering up, lobbying (a buzzword, in Russian - the roof) drug trafficking!

      Most interestingly, after the Taliban came to power in most provinces of Afghanistan, drug production fell from 70% to 90%. After the arrival of the forces of the Coalition and, more simply, the “Sharash office” - the United States and Co-Liberating Afghanistan, drug production has increased Attention by 300%. What can we say about the well-known flights of the US Air Force from the airports of Afghanistan to Europe (it was strictly forbidden to allow airplanes from the base / airports and the US military for the cargo, for which the Hercules and Galaxy aircrafts were completely secretly jammed). Now the USA with the help of ISIS eliminating the obstinate Taliban is killing two birds with one stone:
      1) Creates an even greater hotbed of instability in Central Asia - Greetings to Russia and China (and later India, it is enough to recall the “Kargil war”).
      2) It frees up territory under the accommodating drag of a dealer who, without casting a shadow on his overlord, will cultivate and produce nonsense at the Stakhanov’s pace and transport it by virtue of his territorial location already in Europe and Asia and the Middle East and Africa ...

      So maybe it’s better that they have seized it - radical Islamists do not strongly favor drugs. During the reign of the Taliban, the number of poppy plantings fell sharply. The pendos came - it grew almost 10 times.

        All drugs from Afghanistan are covered by Americans by special services and the transfer from one American distribution structure to another American will not change the hell, so there is no reason to be sad for Americans.

        I suppose the word "capture" was originally incorrect. “Transmit,” “take control,” etc. Money is needed, but oil can be a problem. It is enough to block the black oil market. And for this it is necessary to restore order in Syria and Iraq. For starters - in Syria. So the curators took care of the reserve source of income for the wards.

        Nobody took anything from anyone. Now, probably, the child does not know that the US oversees the drug in Afghanistan. ISIS is a good cover for relieving oneself. Like, I and I are not my handful, it’s the evil ISIS who grows drugs there, we have nothing to do with it, but we won’t let us bomb either, there is democracy.

        When the USSR was in Afghanistan, no one knew about drug addiction in our country. This is by the way to those who naively believe that the introduction of our troops into Afghanistan was a mistake. It’s a word for foolish people that nobody could conquer Afghanistan. I could not conquer because he fucked no one needed. This is for those who think that ours fought there not skillfully. Very skillfully and with extremely minimal losses, so skillfully that the amers could not even dream of such conduct of hostilities. As soon as the troops withdrew, our country was overwhelmed by drug addiction.

          As one state officer used to say, one of the older ones said: “You have kept this country under control for ten years! I'm afraid we wouldn’t be able to!”
          They drank something together there, after the "extreme" "exit" (and this happened)

    Our state is not really worried about the drug trade. "Huckster" divorced so much that everyone can already safely get any kind of drug. Our specials. the services have an excellent income from the protection of "huckster" - I mean not top management, but regional governors. Otherwise, how does the flow of drugs constantly increase across the border? They carry tons. Local cops know about it and "pens warm"

    The Amerians began a titanic struggle for the legalization of drugs (as they had fought for homopaedism - and won); they do not care.

    Afghanistan's share in world drug trafficking was 85% in the supply of opium and 77% in heroin.

    But these figures began to grow after the Americans entered Afghanistan. And the war over the drug supply channels will be ongoing, they will cut and shoot each other.
