Today, on October 27, 2017, in Minsk (Belarus), under the co-chairmanship of Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Yury Chaika and Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Konyuk, a meeting of the Joint Collegium of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Belarus and the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation took place.

The key topic of the discussion was related to the organization of interaction between the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation and the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Belarus in the fight against illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, their precursors and analogues.

The event was attended by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation Alexander Surikov, Deputy Prosecutors General of Russia and Belarus, heads of subdivisions of the central apparatus of the Prosecutor General's Offices, prosecutors of the Republic of Belarus regions.

The main reports were delivered by Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Viktor Grin' and Deputy Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Dubov.

The participants of the meeting noted that illegal trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances is a serious threat that has now acquired transnational status. Constantly developing technologies are now used to conceal criminally punishable acts. Organized forms of illicit drug trafficking are getting more widespread. This requires law enforcement agencies to take effective measures to counter drug crime, strengthening at the same time cooperation between prosecution services of Russia and Belarus in this field.

With the interaction of law enforcement agencies of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, the channels for the inflow of drugs and their transit movement are suppressed, members of international organized criminal groups are identified and brought to criminal responsibility.

Despite the results already achieved, the efficiency of law enforcement agencies' actions in combating illicit drug trafficking do not fully fall in line with the current situation.

As a result of the meeting, decisions were taken aimed at improving the interaction of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Belarus and the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation and at coordinating the activities of law enforcement agencies of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation in combating crime in the field of illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, their precursors and analogues.
