At the Russian embassy in Buenos Aires on Wednesday, Argentinian police seized 389 kilograms (857.59 pounds) of cocaine.
Police nabbed a Russian diplomatic official and a police officer for attempting to traffic the massive amount of cocaine to Europe using the diplomatic courier service of the Russian embassy.
The arrests followed a year-long Argentine-Russian investigation after another Russian diplomatic official reported finding the cocaine in the Embassy to the police.
It is well documented that the CIA (US intelligence) has been involved in the production and trafficking of illegal drugs on a massive scale for a long time (see Paul L. Williams incredible book Operation Gladio: The Unholy Alliance Between the Vatican, the CIA, and the Mafia). But it is also rumored that Russian intelligence is engaged in similar activities.
