Russia blames NATO for Afghan heroin surge

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8540726.stm

excerpt:

“The head of Russia’s federal drug control agency has accused Nato of not doing enough to curb the production of heroin in Afghanistan.

Victor Ivanov said at least 30,000 people died in Russia every year from heroin, 90% of it from Afghanistan.

He blamed the Obama administration for ending a military drive to destroy opium poppy crops in Afghan fields.

The US said the practice was alienating farmers and driving them to support the Taliban. "
