US Turned Afghanistan into World Drug Lab: Russian Security Chief

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper on Wednesday, that the production of opiates in Afghanistan had increased over 40-fold during the past two decades.

“Instead of fighting drug trafficking, over the two decades of the military-political administration of Afghanistan, the United States has implemented a project to create a drug laboratory on a global scale there. The production of opiates has increased more than 40 times,”


He also commented on the US-led NATO forces’ withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“In reality, during the presence of American troops, the number of terrorist acts in Afghanistan has grown significantly,”


According to Russia’s security chief, the West was never able to train Afghanistan’s army, police, and security services.
