State Antidrug Policy Strategy

STRATEGY

for the Implementation of the National Anti-Drug Policy

of the Russian Federation in the Period Until 2020

I. Introduction

1. The adoption of the Strategy for the Implementation of the National Anti-Drug Policy

of the Russian Federation in the Period Until 2020 (hereinafter referred to as the "Strategy") was necessitated by the changes taking place in Russia and all over the world; new threats and challenges emerging from international organized crime, terrorism, extremism, emergence of new narcotic drugs and psychoactive substances (hereinafter referred to as the "drugs"); intensification of negative trends, such as a steady decline in Russia's population, including young working-age population, caused by the growth in illegal spread of drugs.

As stated in the Russian Federation National Security Strategy for the Period Until 2020 approved by the President of the Russian Federation on 12 May 2009, one of the threats to the national security is posed by international organized crime groups involved in the illicit drug and precursor trade.

2. Current drug use situation in the Russian Federation is characterized by the expansion of illicit trade in and non-medical use of highly concentrated drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, amphetamine-type stimulants, psychoactive medical preparations; as well as by the impact of these drugs on the spread of HIV, hepatitis B and C thus posing a major threat to the national security, the national economy and the health of the population.

A key factor in the negative development of the drug use situation in the Russian Federation is the widespread opiate production in Afghanistan and subsequent cross-border trafficking of opiates to Russia.

Some regions of Russia report growing figures in the spread of drugs made from local plants and openly sold medical preparations containing narcotic substances, as well as new types of psychoactive substances that contribute to the generation of the drug-dependent forms of behavior.

The national anti-drug policy is negatively affected by the lack of a state-established drug monitoring system.

Prevention activities, medical care and medical and social rehabilitation of chronic drug users are not organized with due efficiency.  The potential of public associations and religious organizations is not used adequately.

Integrated and well-balanced measures must be taken in order not only to reduce the non-medical drug use and its consequences, but also to assist in the elimination of the financial, organizational, information and other drug-dealing networks.

II. General provisions

3. The Strategy has been developed in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, federal laws and other regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation, generally accepted principles and norms of international law in the countering of illicit trade in drugs and precursors with consideration to national and international experience.  The Strategy defines the goals, principles, key areas and objectives of the anti-drug use policy of the Russian Federation.

The Strategy elaborates the respective anti-drug provisions of the Russian Federation National Security Strategy for the Period Until 2020 and the Concept of the Long-Term Social and Economic Development of the Russian Federation in the Period Until 2020.

4. The main goal of the Strategy is the substantial reduction of illicit trade and non-medical use of drugs, impact of illicit trade on the safety and health of the person, the society and the state.

Drug supply reduction measures in illicit trade are taken with consideration to the economic opportunities of the country, allocation of sufficient financial, material and other resources, including allocation of resources designated for the government agencies in charge of countering illicit trade in drugs and precursors by way of improving their technical equipment base.

Organizational drug supply reduction measures

16. When taking the drug supply reduction measures the Russian Federation proceeds from the necessity to constantly improve the measures taken by the law enforcement agencies with a view to disrupt the activities of organized crime groups (criminal associations) involved in illicit trade in drugs and precursors.

Integrated development and improvement of the activities of the government authorities in charge of countering illicit drug and precursor trade are carried out in order to ensure the reduction of drug supply.

Measures are taken with a view to enhance the social support for the officers of drug control agencies.  Scientific and technical assistance is provided to the agencies in charge of countering illicit trade in drugs and precursors, and these agencies are supplied with special-purpose equipment.

A program of measures aimed at the professional training of staff in anti-drug activities is developed.

Law enforcement agencies and other government agencies cooperate with citizens and civil institutions in the countering of illicit drug and precursor trade, identification of the locations of drug-containing wild plants and facts of illegal cultivation thereof, identification and disruption of corruption-related links that contribute to the illicit trade in drugs and precursors.

Anti-drug safety is ensured by way of strengthening the state border of the Russian Federation and the borders of the customs union, enhancing their technical equipment, generating and improving controls over the goods that cross the customs border of the Russian Federation.

The system of measures of state control over foreign citizens (stateless persons) who come to or stay in the Russian Federation, especially those who come from drug-sensitive regions of the world, is improved in order to prevent illegal trafficking of drugs to the Russian Federation.

Targeted measures are taken to ensure the general safety in the offshore zones.  The system of controls over the maritime cargo and passenger transportation infrastructure is being created.

The strategic goal of the system is to limit the scope of non-medical use of drugs, generate a negative attitude towards illicit drug use and trade and ensure a substantial reduction of demand for drugs.

25. This goal is attained by way of addressing the following key issues:

а) generation of negative public attitude towards non-medical use of drugs by way of, inter alia, holding aggressive anti-drug campaigns, countering illegal advertising and promotion of drugs and other psychoactive substances, increasing the level of public awareness of the negative consequences of non-medical drug use and the liability for involvement in illicit drug trade, implementing an efficient information policy in the mass media;

а) children and adolescents not older than 17 (schoolchildren, pupils of various educational institutions, convicts educated in the juvenile correctional facilities);

b) young people not older than 30;

c) employable population;

d) conscripts and servicemen.

It is also necessary to elaborate the mechanisms for social partnership between government institutions and Russian corporations, public associations and organizations in the course of the anti-drug measures.
