lol I believe that in the source I brought to you just now, it sais of US custom or something catching a fishing boat with 1 Russian and 1 Ukranian with 21 or 20 tones of Cocaine. What is your point? Russians can pretty much fly cocaine into Russia from Columbia, if u know the right ppl you have no problems getting cocaine inside Russia.
LOL! Calm down bro, it was 12 tonnes of cocaine and it was not a fishing boat. Didnt you read it? It was the largest drug bust in U.S. Maritime history.
Yes, I know that big time Russian bosses would probably have no trouble getting it in Russia if they had the right government connections in Russia and the right connections in Colombia.
But the fact still remains, the Balkan route is still a more noticable route for cocaine entering Europe. Albania is totally lawless, even if they find cocaine in a ship on the Albanian port, the gangsters who brought it in will tell the police to go fuck themselves like that one time when they held the Vlora police chief hostage until the Italian government sent back their drug boats that they intercepted. They sent them back afterwards and the police chief was let go.
It wasent just Frederik Durda who had connections. Frederik was seen at cocaine ranches belonging to the most powerful Colombian drug lords, he was seen in helicopters and on prize horses on these ranches. He alleged promised the Colombians he would manage thousands of kilos a month for them entering Europe. Aldo Bare was another crime figure. I read all about his organization in the Albanian newspaper, Interpol captured one of his liutenants last summer. He was in charge of bringing in serious weight of cocaine also. The 12 tonnes of cocaine from Albania was another incident, the 400 kilos of cocaine that came in Macedonia through a front company called "MACfoods" was just another incident. The Fact that Belgian authorities said Albanians lead the trade in cocaine sales around here.
No one doubted that Russians dont have connections to South America... but their connection hasent been made as visible as the connection the Albanians have is all I am saying.
Neither have I. Are you sure your not talking about Kazakhstan, I hear they consume it there like water. But anyway Albania is smaller, and if Albania has a visible problem with coke or heroin use, I would know about it, I would have heard at least one time from my aunt, be careful out there, people are on drugs here lol. I hear that here but never when I go there.
lol yea, I am sure.
Again, from things I recently read on the internet of Russians in the US, like 'thewestside' said and like I said before, there is a difference between Russians in the 70's and Russians in the 90's. No I have not seen it, is it good?
Whats the difference? Werent Russians crazier in the 70s? Yeah it is a good movie. Basically its about a Russian crew who developed a new way in sneaking heroin into the United States. One of their leaders gets caught with drugs on him but escapes prison and starts killing cops left and right. He keeps going on through out the movie about how much "muscle" they have for their operation. Their whole objective is to push out the Italians from the heroin trade and establish themselves and their partners [Albanians] as new leaders of the heroin trade in America. In the end, the Albanians and Russians meet together but the entire NYPD is there and break it up, everyone goes to jail and Vadim [Russian gangster] gets killed by the son of the cop he killed earlier. Its a good movie. You should watch it. The movie takes place in 1988.
1970's until now of an Albanian gangster paying the LCN to operate.
I dont know about that..[/quote]
Of course you do. If there was any evidence of Albanian gangsters paying tribute to the LCN at any point of time, we would have heard about. The Albanians did work for them, but there hasent been a case where they paid them tribute.
