MOSCOW. March 12 (Interfax) - The Federal Drug Control Service's Moscow region department has seized about 330 kilograms of heroin and detained drug dealing group members from Central Asia, the department press service told Interfax on Wednesday.
"Officers of the Federal Drug Control Service's Moscow region department have stopped operations of an ethnic criminal group which was supplying and distributing a narcotic drug, heroin, in the Moscow region.
