  • CENTRAL ASIA: TAJIKISTAN: DRUG TRAFFICKING

    Russian/Nat Drugs smuggling throughout the former Soviet Central Asian republics has surged since the collapse of the Soviet Union led to a breakdown in borders. The Russian government claims over half of all drugs in Russia come from Tajikistan or via Tajikistan from Afghanistan. Some say the Central Asian state is becoming the Colombia of the CIS. The Tajik police are trying to fight the upsurge in drug trafficking but find themselves undermanned and underequipped. The mountain range of Zaravshan in Northern Tajikistan - a thousand metres above sea level, it is an area of wild and natural beauty. And separated from the rest of Tajikistan by almost impassable mountains, it is an ideal location for the country's fastest growing business - drugs. According to estimates, one h...

  • TAJIKISTAN, National Treasure Part 1 of 2

    Tajikistan, the poorest country in central Asia, was with neighbouring Uzbekistan the cotton producer of the Soviet Union. In a mountainous country with only 6% of arable land, 80% of all agriculture has been exclusively devoted to cotton. Today, the government pursues the same agricultural policy while the country tries to recover from a five-year civil war and a series of droughts. The land reform is not yet complete and farmers must follow cotton production plans on credit. Poverty has increased and food supply is insufficient. The international community helps with funds which are managed by the villagers to introduce alternative crops and livelihoods.

Russian/Nat Drugs smuggling throughout the former Soviet Central Asian republics has surged since the collapse of the Soviet Union led to a breakdown in borders. The Russian government claims over half of all drugs in Russia come from Tajikistan or via Tajikistan from Afghanistan. Some say the Central Asian state is becoming the Colombia of the CIS. The Tajik police are trying to fight the upsurge in drug trafficking but find themselves undermanned and underequipped. The mountain range of Zaravshan in Northern Tajikistan - a thousand metres above sea level, it is an area of wild and natural beauty. And separated from the rest of Tajikistan by almost impassable mountains, it is an ideal location for the country's fastest growing business - drugs. According to estimates, one hectare can yield up to 60 kilogrammes of raw opium. And the men who farm the plantations can make as much as 1000 dollars per kilogramme. But this is only a fraction of the true value of the drug to Russia's drug barons who process the raw opium into pure heroin in their clandestine laboratories in Russia's large cities. The street value of the processed drug increases tenfold. Although the volume of drugs coming out of Central Asia is a fraction of the notorious golden triangle in the Far East, or the cocaine fields of Central America, the authorities are alarmed at the speed at which it is growing. Hundreds of men make the long trek up the mountain every week to collect the precious drops of milk from hectare upon hectare of poppies. For many in the poorest of the former Soviet republics, it is their only source of income. The Tajik farmers do not like what they do but say the economic chaos in the country leaves them with little choice SOUNDBITE: (Russian) There are no jobs. We have no income. Depending on the number of people who work for me, from 20 to 30, we can collect a kilogramme in a day. That's about a thousand dollars. SUPERCAPTION: Akhmed, drug farmer - did not want to show his face But the relative safety enjoyed by Akhmed and his fellow farmers may soon be over. Lieutenant-Colonel Karim Yunusov and his men have been charged with the task of tracking down and destroying this year's crop. Although they have scored some successes already, Yunusov freely admits that the operation, code-named Opium '95, is unlikely to leave more than a dent in such a well-run business. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) The current situation is all due to the collapse of the Soviet Union, with its ensuing economic and political difficulties. All these factors probably compelled people to engage in drug trafficking. Many enterprises remain idle. People have been laid off. And those who do work get miserable salaries. There are problems galore and we won't resolve them by just destroying the poppies. SUPERCAPTION: Lt-Col Karim Yunusov, regional drug enforcement chief Yunusov allows his men a moment to keep for posterity before the battle commences. Armed only with sticks the results are of limited effect. At such high altitudes his men must stop every few minutes to catch their breath. And as fast as they destroy the crops, over the other side of the mountain farmers are starting yet more plantations. Yunusov badly needs better equipment. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) We have no kerosene to fly our only helicopter and we can't use it all the time anyway. If we had a helicopter we could have flown up to the mountain and destroyed all the crops immediately. SUPERCAPTION: Lt-Col Karim Yunusov, regional drug enforcement chief As it is, it takes Yunusov and his men four hours just to climb the mountain. With such limited manpower and lack of equipment they face an uphill battle.
