Russian FSB officers, together with representatives of the US Department of Justice, conducted a special operation, during which they seized at least 330 kilograms of cocaine.

This is stated in the message of the Center for Public Relations of the FSB, received by RBC.

The criminal group, as noted in the department, was smuggling cocaine from South America to Russia, as well as to European countries.

As a result of the first stage of the joint operation in St. Petersburg in May, a courier was detained. Then they found and seized 1 kg of cocaine.

The ministry added that other representatives of the "narco-OPG" were detained in June red-handed when they tried to sell drugs in Moscow. Then 34 kg of cocaine were seized from them. The FSB did not specify how many people were detained.
