MOSCOW, February 26 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court has detained three men charged with attempted cocaine smuggling from Argentina, the court’s spokesperson Svetlana Maksimova has told RAPSI.

Therefore, Vladimir Kalmykov and Ishtimir Khudzhamov will stay in until April 13, while another defendant Ali Abayanov will remain in detention until April 12.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, law enforcement authorities of Russia and Argentina have collaboratively suppressed delivery of a large consignment of drugs (cocaine) from Argentina to Europe. The drugs ready for delivery were found in one of the Russian embassy buildings in Buenos Aires in 2016. Cocaine allegedly belonged to an embassy technical staff member, whose duty journey was over by that time. During the conducted operation, Russian and Argentinean citizens were arrested, the statement reads.
