The area of ​​opium plantations in Afghanistan from 2001 g increased 32 times

48
At the last meeting in Astrakhan of representatives of services to combat the spread of drugs in Russia and Iran, very alarming facts were announced: over the past 15 years, the opium plantations in Afghanistan have increased tenfold, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




“As you all know, now America has subjugated Afghanistan. In 2001, the land on which narcotic substances are produced was 7 thousand hectares. Last year, criminal crops increased to 224 thousand hectares. This means that those responsible for this in Afghanistan increased the amount of drugs tenfold, ”said Morteza Merzai, deputy head of the Iranian anti-drug police.

According to him, “Afghanistan annually produces 6,5 thousand tons of deadly potion, mostly heroin, and almost 25 percent of this amount goes to Iran for use and for transit.”

Last year, "on the territory of the republic, 500 tons of drugs were found," said Merzai, noting that they do not grow or produce them in Iran.

“Nowhere in the world can such a quantity of drugs be found,” he said.

According to Iranian law enforcement officers, the profit from the potion "along with receiving financial assistance from like-minded people from other countries, goes to finance the fighters DAISH and the Taliban."

Oleg Safonov, who was present at the meeting of the deputy head of the Russian drug control service, told reporters that “Russia will continue to actively cooperate with Iran in order to cut off the supply of drugs to the Caspian countries.”

Safronov refrained from more detailed comments.

        I always remember a Chinese documentary in which Chinese border guards detained a detachment of drug dealers (8-10 people) and, without understanding their belongings, put them all in the nearest ravine! To my deep regret in Russia, the “moratorium” imposed on us by the West, although by and large the West is not a decree for us. We never saw anything good from him, and we are unlikely to see it!
        We would not have this moratorium - there would not have been such a proliferation of drugs in Russia. Distributors would quickly find themselves “on the other side of the earth”!

    Neither production should be developed, nor advanced technologies introduced and mastered. Especially for this there is no personnel, no desire. Sowed poppy and profit exponentially. They wanted to sneeze at all! If the authorities, especially the weaker ones, cannot influence the situation, then external influence is needed. And in this many have already failed. We need consolidation, but it is not possible in real execution ... Example; Syria, Russia alone works in this direction. The rest are engaged in chatter ...

    And what prevents Russia from destroying raw processing facilities on a regular basis?
    Or it's time there to spray on the fields something interesting of animal or chemical origin.
    In the end, burn. How much time does the poppy need to grow and mature - I am sure it takes much less to destroy.
    And it's time to score on the fact that there are small "light elf" bases there.
    Daesh is already moving from the direction of Afghanistan to the borders of Central Asia - the question is only when they attack, it may not wait.

    Afghan drugs are one of the main sources of financing for militants. The product is compact, valuable. It does not need to be transported in thousands of bulk timber (when selling oil) - a couple of donkeys in mountain abysses will bring more profit. To deal with this problem is much more difficult than to destroy oil storage tanks and oil tanks. Maybe someone will correct, in the era of the stay of our troops there was practice — the fields with poppy seeds were destroyed, and the owners were persecuted — BUT there was an alternative — sow another crop (wheat) and bought the crop at a good price. And the farmers thought about either losing everything or making money. FOR THIS NEED A STATE-WITH CENTRAL AUTHORITY! With this tribal fragmentation, only destroy crops from the air (you can use the experience of the United States, use chemistry). hi

    From the book of Anatoly Yakovlevich Voronin Second Belt. (Revelations of an adviser) (. For two years he was an adviser to the special department (intelligence) of Tsarandoy, Kandahar province. For the last four months of the Afghan mission, he served as senior adviser to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR in Kandahar province. He was directly involved in military and special operations. 1986-1988) -A the general, meanwhile, as if having read my thoughts, continued.
    - Simple arithmetic calculations show that in order to grow the same grapes and make raisins from it, the farmer takes at least six months. About one hectare in its pure form produces about half a ton of raisins. Given that its value in the market is not more than fifty Afghani per kilogram, it turns out - twenty-five thousand Afghani. Now let's see what happens when a farmer grows opium poppy. From the same hectare he receives at least ten kilograms of teryak. And a gram of teryak, even here in Afghanistan, has never been cheaper than ten Afghani per gram. We multiply and get the amount - one hundred thousand Afghani. The difference is at least fourfold. And if we take into account that the period of poppy ripening until the moment when they start to collect “milk” is only three months, it turns out that the time spent on its cultivation by the farmer is reduced by almost half. What do you think, Rafik Mushaver, what is more profitable to grow a farmer? Art of War (c).

    The means of enrichment and warfare by naglosaks were worked out in China as a result of the Opium Wars for a long period of time, the territory of China was completely controlled, the US market has now privatized and, with their characteristic desire to increase profits, they have increased the area under crops, a fact known for a long time by the US PMCs to protect crops and product transportation. Not only are Central Asia and Russia, China and India at risk of supplies, but also U.S. entrepreneurs are in the spotlight, Narco war is very effective, especially in democracies.

    I’m talking about this, but if the same raisins or wheat are bought at higher prices. And the price for raw materials for heroin is not sky-high, smugglers, wholesalers and all the rest, to street vendors take the entire margin. And to conduct army tactical exercises on poppy fields , with the entrenchment (spoil the crop). Yes there will be LOSSES. But Russia also contains a huge state at customs, all kinds of anti-drug services, security support structures that already catch Afghan heroin inside the country. And funds for prevention, for treatment for drug addiction. Youth involvement , street crime, theft, etc.-because many steal a dose. In general, then save! hi

    For the majority of settled peasants in Afghanistan, poppy cultivation is the only source of livelihood. And they pay them for modest enough modest money. The increase in value occurs at the processing stage and the Afghans-peasants have the farthest relation to this process. The rights of colleagues, replace poppy with another culture, will grow another. True, due to the unpretentiousness of growing poppies, it has no equal, which is also important for peasants.
    And the destruction by the Taliban of crops, this is not a solution, since the Taliban do not offer alternatives, therefore not all Taliban Afghans.
    Something like that, colleagues. hi

    It depends on who you listen to. 14.10.2015/XNUMX/XNUMX

    The sown area on which opium poppy is grown in 2015 amounted to 19% less compared to 2014. The decrease was recorded for the first time in six years.

    The area of ​​opium poppy plantations in Afghanistan has decreased by almost 20%, a decrease recorded for the first time in six years, evidence from a report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Afghan Ministry of Drugs, released on Wednesday.

    According to these data, the sown area on which opium poppy is grown in 2015 amounted to 183 thousand hectares, which is 19% less than last year, when the sown area reached 224 thousand hectares.
    According to the report, the main reason for the decrease in the cultivated area of ​​opium poppy was adverse weather conditions, as well as government propaganda campaigns.



    For some reason, Rossiyskaya Gazeta cited last year’s data, not to mention that this year’s decrease is 19%. Apparently, to betray the article more propaganda sense.

    Now if you read that -


    The total area of ​​opium poppy plantations found in the provinces of Afghanistan in 2013 amounted to 209 thousand hectares, breaking the 2007 record (193 thousand hectares). This was stated by the US Inspector General for the Restoration of Afghanistan (SIGAR) John Sopko, Afghanistan.Ru reports.


    And remember that in 2015 amounted to 183 thousand - it turns out this volume is less than the record in 2007 (193 thousand hectares).

    It turns out that in 2015 it was possible to reduce to the amount that was in 2007. And if it seems to be a record, then maybe even earlier.


    That is, the title could be given for example as follows - The area of ​​opium plantations in Afghanistan fell below the 2007 level laughing
