Law enforcement officers blocked drug trafficking from Europe organized by a resident of Kyiv. The criminals supplied cocaine, ecstasy, and hashish under the guise of cosmetics, and the monthly income from the "business" amounted to more than UAH 1 million.

This was reported by the press service of the National Police of Ukraine. The suspects face up to 10 years in prison with confiscation of property.

"The suspects disguised drugs and psychotropics in household chemicals and cosmetics. The drug business was organized by a 33-year-old Kyiv resident, who now lives abroad, from where he supplied drugs. He involved six other participants in the illegal activity. In March last year, law enforcement officers conducted the first stage of the special operation and detained three suspects, seizing cocaine worth one million hryvnias. Subsequently, police documented the activities of four more people involved in drug trafficking," the press service said.

On June 29, the police implemented the second stage of the special operation. In the capital, 10 simultaneous authorized searches were conducted at the suspects' residences and in their cars. Investigators seized more than 80 grams of cocaine, 50 grams of methamphetamine, 100 MDMA pills.

They also seized electronic scales, devices for packaging drugs under the guise of cosmetics, money in national and foreign currency, packaging materials, and "draft" records. The estimated value of the seized "goods" at black market prices is over UAH 3.5 million.

Four members of the group have been detained – investigators have served them with a notice of suspicion for selling drugs by a group of people. In addition, an indictment against one of the suspects is already being considered by the Obolonskyi District Court of Kyiv under a similar article. The police are identifying all persons involved in the supply of drugs from Europe to Ukraine.
