Russian fear over UN futile operation against drugs in Afghanistan

There is no hope to remove unlawful production of heroin in Afghanistan because UN campaign is ineffective and effortless and had no chance to achieve goals, said a Russian anti-drug tsar on MondayRussia is the largest consumer of heroin and striving to come out from heroin disaster. 

The situation has become more worsen when it was revealed that at least 3 million heroin addicts are now facing a HIV/AIDS plague that is scattering surrounded by drug users through dirty needles. Viktor Ivanoy, head of Federal Drug Control Service, told that the United Nation Plan to control over heroin production in Afghanistan is appearing futile and has no progress.
Three year back The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) had projected a widespread plan to undertake Afghan heroin production and trafficking. It was also made a strategy to enhance opium free provinces for the purpose of securing Central Asian borders and improving safety around Caspian Sea.

Ivanov said this plan has confirmed "absolutely futile" and that the attention should be on "completely wiping out Afghan drug production".

According to the United Nations, now greater than five times of the 370 tonnes of heroin arriving from peak producer Afghanistan now discovers its way via former soviet Central Asia to Russia.

A harsh criticism has been made by the local and international health communities over Russian role that say it must be made proper arrangements for tackling drugs at home, including by authorizing the heroin alternative methadone.
