    KHABAROVSK, January 19 (RIA Novosti correspondent Oleg Kulgin) - Two Iranian citizens, who illegally arrived in the Russian Far East, were taken off a train in Khabarovsk, reported the press service of the Far Eastern Federal District Main Department of the State Drugs Control. Staff members of this department conducted the operation.

    Foreigners and drugs are smuggled abroad via an illegal channel through the Russian Far East. On January 11, three Iranian citizens were detained aboard a Russian timber ship, Imperatorskaya Gavan, in the Vanino port (the Khabarovsk Territory, western coast of the Tatar Strait).

    The detainees had considerable amounts of U.S., Japanese and Iranian currencies and, allegedly, drugs.

    The Russian citizens, who helped foreigners acquire the ship, were identified and detained. It has been established that an Iranian with Spanish citizenship headed the operation.

    The Iranian citizens legally arrived in Moscow and then with expired visas or forged documents reached Japan, via ports, to work.

    In Japan, the illegal migrants are engaged in the narcotic business and sell old cars and household equipment.
