Created by researchers at the Institute for the Rule of Law at the European University at St. Petersburg, it utilises primary crime records to show which drugs were seized by the police in the country at district level.
This level of detail is unprecedented in the world. It offers a new look at drug crimes and drug enforcement. Click on a district to explore the seized drugs by type or value. Color the map by the drug of interest. Compare the values drug seizures by the police and the Federal Narcotics Service (FSKN) at regional level.
Read the underlying study
The reported district figures indicate drug seizures related to crimes under art. 228-234 of Criminal Code that were registered by the police only (not the Federal Narcotics Service or other agencies). We do not report the data from the FSKN at district level due to insufficient information on the locations of its district offices. We thank the Open Government of Russia for its support in creating the data set.
