Russian Federation’s response to INCB statement

The Russian Federation thanked the INCB for its report, and for ‘standing in the defense of the international narcotics control regime’, and that it should ‘stand watchful’ against the attempts to ‘dilute the regime’.

Russia expressed concerns about supply and traffic of precursor chemicals, and the supply of heroin from Afghanistan. Russia urged strict adherence to UN Security Council Resolution 1817. Russia proposes ‘marking’ precursors, which it believes will cut down on their supply to Afghanistan.
