Russia’s FSB busts international drug smuggling ring

RT published this video item, entitled “Russia’s FSB busts international drug smuggling ring” – below is their description.

In a rare collaborative effort, Russian and American law enforcement officials have busted a transnational criminal gang smuggling cocaine from South America to Europe, seizing 330 kilograms of the drug.

The drug smuggling chain was busted as a result of a “months-long multi-stage international operation,” Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that the first members of the gang were detained as early as in May. The operation was conducted together with the US Justice Department’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section (NDDS).

“In close cooperation with international partners,” the Russian security service identified the members of the smuggling chain and managed to detain many active gang members, including a ringleader in an operation in June, the statement said.
