According to Russian President’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, there is evidence that the US intelligence and the CIA encouraged a drug trafficking from Afghanistan to Russia, Europe and China.

 

The US intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were involved in strengthening of a drug trafficking from Afghanistan to Russia, Europe and China, the Russian side has evidence, Russian President’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, said during a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday.

 

“Objectively, Americans were not interested in suppressing drug trafficking. Firstly, they feared to alienate broad masses of the peasantry, and about 2.5 million people are employed in this sector, and each of them has the Kalashnikov, hanging from a nail at his home,” Kabulov said.

 

However, according to him, there also was a “hidden reason,” connected with the drug supply to Russia and Europe.

 

“US streets got a maximum of 0.4% of Afghan heroin. All the drugs were sent to Russia, Europe, China and India. Americans did not have a reason to be worried. It is not my own version, it has substantiation,” Kabulov said.
