@Neurozoo

HOW were they were caught?

Why those people think that Japan custom won't check their package ?

concealed in air cargo from Mexico to Japan,

What were their supply lines and how to sell the drug on?

I don’t see Russian drug dealers in the bars and clubs in Japan..,

A Ukrainian and two Russian men have been arrested

Finally Ukraine and Russia can collaborate together! Hopefully they'll find something which is legal to collaborate in the future.

Who said Russians and Ukrainians can't co operate.

Strange story, why was the delivery so brazenly nonchalant?

they are proving that the drug market exists in Japan.

Japanese consumers are waiting for the Russian dose.

Please do not post comments in bold face.

What was the name of the stimulant?

I’m going to guess it was meth, but why not inform the public?

Oh, I though the Ukraine and Russia were not on speaking terms.... Well that is what the mainstream media tells you as the US supports it's economy by manufacturing and supplying arms and the Ukraine supports it's own economy by selling the aforementioned arms to Georgia and the Balkans... Good to see the truth come out at last :p

Crikey!!  113 kilograms of illegal stimulants. This is over two times my body weight. These two must be very stupid and just plain dumb.

Guess the Ukrainian was the informant ;)

They were all acquainted with each other? Well, that's a shock!

J police probably thought it suspicious that a secondhand car/machinery export business was importing stuff from Mexico. Rudko has been in Japan since 2003, so I wonder if any other contraband has got through in the past!

A very silly thing to do.

hang them all.

Drug smuggling isn't a hanging offense.

They are Mexican drugs probably from the cartels. They won't be going to prison.

Nice catch! Pop them in a jail for a very very long time.

7 billion yen

That’s only about 100 US dollars. Too risky.

20-30 years in prison.

You might be surprised to find onion dome Orthodox Russian churches dating from the 1800s in Baja California. Russians settled the west coast of North America that far south. To this day there is a Russian speaking community in the Guadalupe Valley of Baja California. The famous singer and song writer Linda Ronstadt is a product of that community.
