The President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko charged the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) and the Ministry of Health to develop a program concerning the fight with drug addiction during 30 days.

According to the President, there is an increase of drug addicts in Ukraine. Yushchenko reported that 122 thousand drug addicts are registered for today in Ukraine, and two thirds of them are young people. In addition, Yushchenko pointed to insufficient efforts of police in fight with drugs turnover.

In particular, the President paid attention to the low statistic data about crime detecting. He was surprised by the fact that none international channel of drug supply was revealed in Kharkov, Kiev, Kherson regions and the Sevastopol city. "Either policemen are engaged in this (drug supply – ed.) or they are not policemen," declared Yushchenko.

The President charged the heads of MIA Departments in these regions to send him personal reports about improvement of fight with drug turnover.
