In total, about 40 grams of potent drugs were seized from citizens of the Russian Federation, packaged for sale in 98 bookmarks and a package. A criminal case was opened on this fact.
The Russians were taken into custody. During the arrest, one of them resisted law enforcement officers and fled the scene of the crime. Later he was arrested. One of the suspects confessed that he wanted to sell drugs in Abkhazia.
Contents with prohibited substances were confiscated from the detainees and bookmarks made by them were found.
The article, which Romankov and Chepel are talking about, provides long terms of imprisonment, up to life imprisonment.
Earlier, American businessman Elon Musk called for the release of all drug convicts in the United States from prisons. The entrepreneur addressed the proposal to US President Joe Biden, who, according to Musk, is too actively working on the release of Brittney Griner, convicted in the Russian Federation for smuggling illegal substances.
