severe punishment all the way up to a life sentence for people not involved in large drug related crimes will consider alternative action which may mean offering them the option of taking a therapy course instead of punishment according to. and that. is. what is the problem. to drug users. these figures are in fact common for the whole world i mean police all over the world be it europe or america only managed to confiscate around ten percent of illegally traded drugs within their countries another thing is the extremely low efficiency of our borders and their administrative and legal methods lead to the point two percent of all drugs are intercepted at the borders drugs that get into russia first have to go through the states of central asia where they're not intercepted those states themselves above all are victims of
afghanistan's enormous drug production. as a matter of fact afghanistan itself is the victim of global drug mafia work which creates the demand and the political will to continue production in the country this is why countries next going to stand have the greatest density of drug flow. simply because they are closer to the epicenter further away the drug flows splits into lots of different channels and then drugs get to russia for example through the seven thousand kilometer border with kazakstan. what percentage of drugs. over eighty percent of all synthetic substances that are illegally traded in russia originate in europe most of the netherlands where most of. them in base drugs are manufactured with poland the baltic states germany bulgaria and many other countries with underground drug labs some cells are small but there are many of them and the substances they produce find their way to russia of. various channels
speaking of the amounts that we intercept and confiscate its nearly half a ton of synthetic substances every year mostly these are methamphetamine. l.s.d. ecstasy and other similar drugs. they're. testing people on mass would be far too radical no of course not we're talking about establishing an early warning system to detect drug addicts and abusers after all people are not born addicted to drugs it all starts with experimenting mostly in teenage years when kids start spending more time on the streets away from their parents that's when they get to know drugs this needs to be detected at an early stage and if parents are warned in advance sometimes it just takes parental action and advice to put an end to these dangerous practices if not stopped in time these experiments later lead to regular consumption which in turn requires longer and more costly treatment. you.
know we're not talking about force treatment here any forcing of treatment is a violation of the person so it's important that drug users make this decision for themselves in our country drug abuse is subject to administrative liability and punishment by paying a fine on average six hundred roubles punished and then they're released so our society seems to hope the drug users will somehow realize that they require treatment for this addiction. but they won't because their mind is blurred by chemical and psychoactive substances. therefore a legal system should be created to push them towards having treatment and as i've said this is what we call alternative responsibility by the way this is also recommended in the united nations and the drugs conventions according to.
what you. i have to say that we rejected this kind of conclusion so did my colleagues in the u.s. russia presidential commission mr gil kerlikowske made a statement we discussed it immediately with washington over the hotline and criticized the global commission legalizing drugs is a road to nowhere more than that it will result in the growth of drug. let me remind you of a referendum on legalizing marijuana in california in september last year i was there when it was held where we decided with mr gil kerlikowske a number of meetings with officials including the man the sheriff the chief of police the prosecutor respectable professions had a clear position against a legalizing marijuana and the referendum confirms that it should not be legalized . drugs.
third. california. but i have explicit information from the u.s. presidential administration that this financier had largely funded the campaign. point. this example of the global commission reminds me of a global p.r. campaign by drawing so much attention but even a respectable agency like the b.b.c. covered the fact that this belongs to the u.n. i mean even serious agencies were confused therefore there are many reasons to believe that this drug lobby had funded the campaign moreover i want to indicate that we've been discussing at various international platforms on may the tenth i spoke at the g eight ministerial conference in paris and so did many of my colleagues we said that unfortunately our fight against drugs stagnates at both local and regional levels because the global level stay. even beyond our
understanding this concept hasn't been developed yet i did this context i want to know that the former under secretary general of the united nations antonio. who was responsible for the drug problem mentioned that in two thousand and eight to two thousand and nine in the midst of the global financial crisis. three hundred fifty two billion u.s. dollars from selling drugs were pumped into the world's leading banks this means that a certain global level determines or sets the demand for drug turnover and ultimately a political order for this production. as far as the withdrawal from afghanistan is concerned the picture is unclear so far it was said that the withdrawal would start and certain parameters for it have been set they've mentioned thirty thousand troops by the end of the year but when i was in washington last september they were talking about the need to increase the
military contingent in afghanistan exactly by thirty thousand now they're planning to return these thirty cells and in fact nothing has changed i think the world community and you can disagree is beginning to consider the situation in afghanistan because there were several reasons behind the decision to launch a military operation and the decision of the world community to interfere in the fair's of this for country. first to put an end to the taliban rule to set up an interim administration and hold free elections. these tasks were supposed to be in six or twelve months but this september we'll see the tenth anniversary of that interference it's longer than world war two but the situation in afghanistan hasn't improved it's become even worse and even senior officials like general petraeus for example is commanding the military operation in afghanistan says that the number of armed clashes there increases year after year in fact the number of armed clashes over the past ten years has increased more than a hundred times so have the assigned tasks been achieved we see that security in
afghanistan has. said that drug production cannot be fought because it damages the security situation in the country so it's a kind of closed circle in this respect to the be worthwhile to note a nato operation in helmand province which produces the most opium poppies the operation was called. which translated from persian means together. the operation was presented as a brilliant military success considerable kilometers and hectares of the province were reportedly cleared of insurgents but the production of opium has never stopped that's why a peaceful settlement is necessary we've started talking about this at long last it was highlighted at the london conference on afghanistan in two thousand and ten the autumn conference in kabul also stressed the need to find a peaceful settlement with the latest initiatives voiced by the us president barack obama on negotiations with the taliban and the latest resolutions of the united
nations security council which divided responsibility between the taliban and al qaeda are offering a unique opportunity in my view to drop a program of eliminating drug production i've just come from a meeting of the parliamentary faction of the progressive alliance of socialists and democrats the second largest faction in the european union here outside the european parliament building we discussed the e.u. strategy toward. afghanistan large sections of that strategy are devoted to liquidation of drugs production they used to be matches very well with a russian drafted plan called rudiger to liquidate the production of drugs in afghanistan but in fact the direction that russia and the european union are taking fit together very well so today we have a unique opportunity for resolution and decisive action. the head of russia's federal drug service thank you very much for speaking with us today thank you very much.

a round two hundred metres left but people followed and had no power to get his first win on the frenchman thomas walked like the yellow jersey he's a minute and forty nine seconds ahead of spain's recently on sand chips. after cruising to an emphatic victory at the u.s. open many expect roy mcelroy to win goal of open championship which gets underway on thursday the twenty two year old from northern ireland has been at the center of the media's attention mcelroy hasn't played a competitive brand since his win at the congressional but says that's the way he likes it. yeah i mean i'm trying to prepare for this this major like i prepare for every other major you have been i was here last week for a couple of days and i got a couple practice runs and you know one time to practice you know sort of get away from everything and then come back here or you know. on tuesday which i usually do you know it seemed to work the last few days last few times of i've done it so you know i want to just keep the same the same thing go on and. you know deftly seems
to work confident fellow but he will have his work cut out if he wants to get his hands on a second major new world number one luke donald among his competitors although some big names are also missing constant the top of now looks at the ins and outs at this year's open championship. the highest paid professional athlete in the world or woods is still the biggest name in golf however the fourteen time major winner will miss the open due to trouble some left leg injury the thirty five year old's quest to equal and best origin reject nicolas total of eighteen on the big barrier for now they have tire gets his health back. tiger went again and he went he went quite a bit again and break my record probably injury also ruling for muslim bat out of the bull's oldest major in the most bizarre circumstances the forty two year old became the second local quit to win the french open at the start of the month and

a thrilling five set edging the decider fifteen eleven maxime top scoring for the winners with twenty seven points it is also a lengthy ornament and a russia that only won the world once before the two thousand and two. shows there should support i remember the entire final game against brazil including the fifth set and the winning point yes we won the world league but we need to keep working because we are not like the brazilians who used to win the tournament for an impressive a tears in a row but it was only a second title so we have to continue to work toward them. in motor sport two time dakar rally winnifred asked a bit of his leading the silk why rally in his command struck the race from moscow to sort she is taking place this week and is also seeing quite a battle in the car section of the contestants picking up the pace is the race went south from volgograd to staff and edging closer to its finish in sochi a bit of was just over six minutes behind. the on that day but that second place
finish was enough to increase the overall gap over another russian. and in the cards stefan petter hands the team a clear still follow through it's got his first stage when of the event the polo leads in the overall standings but it's creeping up to four six three and we will end with major league baseball's all star game so the national league got a five one win over the american league to secure home field advantage for the world series several big names were absent chase field in arizona in all sixteen of eighty four stars were dropped but prince fielder shone with a three run homer in the fifth inning as the national lead to a five one when. the most valuable player award actually and then this all to see. is the sport for the moment we've got more in a couple of hours time but we have got the weather coming up next.
