In all cases of drug poisoning, employees of the drug trafficking control department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Magnitogorsk are working to establish their links in order to suppress the criminal activity of the drug dealer.

The press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has organized work to inform residents of the city of the results of the work of the departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the fight against drug trafficking.

In the period from February 2019 to the present, the employees of the PMC of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Magnitogorsk have been carrying out a set of operational-search measures for distributors of opium (poppy seeds).

On the territory of Magnitogorsk, the international special anti-drug operation “Channel-Center”, the All-Russian action “Tell where they trade in death”, the interdepartmental complex operational and preventive operation “Children of Russia - 2019” and “Mak-2019” were carried out. Narcotic substances were seized, and protocols and administrative offenses were drawn up.

“Narcotization of the population is one of the acute social problems. As a rule, drug users commit crimes in order to obtain funds for their purchase. The criminals who organize the sale of narcotic drugs, in order to obtain super-profits, involve wide sections of the population in criminal activity, which, unfortunately, include minors, students, employees of city enterprises, residents of the city who do not have regular earnings, both previously convicted and not having criminal experience. Such category of citizens as pensioners did not become an exception, - Andrei Petrovich noted. “In view of the foregoing, it should be noted that the fight against drug trafficking remains the preferred direction of the activities of the internal affairs bodies, which are given special attention.”
