The drug gang delivered heroine from Kyrgyzstan and sold it out on the territory of Bashkortostan, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Circulation Control Service in RB Valerie Kokin reported to journalists today.

The whole operation on liquidation of the gang lasted during four years. In the course of the arrest the policemen discovered 7,2 kg of heroine in the car of the gang leader – a 32-year old citizen of Ufa. 91 gangsters were brought to trial, including four citizens of Bashkortostan. 37 gangsters are already sentenced to a long-term imprisonment. But the drug policemen don’t conceal that the members of the gang, who are still free, will try to restore their criminal business.
