The loudest case in 2018 was the investigation of a channel for the supply of cocaine from Argentina to Russia through the diplomatic line. Bought in Latin America hundreds of kilograms of drugs, stored in the building of the Russian embassy, ​​then spetsbortami, under the guise of personal belongings of embassy staff, was sent to Moscow. In 2016 in a well-established system there was a "failure". The embassy's chief of staff, Ali Abyanov, who was responsible for the storage and transportation of the cargo, was unexpectedly recalled to Moscow. A new manager with the "security" of the embassy found "legacy" of Abyanov-12 suitcases, slaughtered with cocaine. What would normally be done by representatives of special services, who were immediately informed of the state of emergency? They would simply have washed the entire cargo in the toilet and only a small group of people remained aware of what had happened. However, in this situation, the FSB of the Russian Federation decided to give a course to the materials and even to connect the Argentine colleagues to the operation. Why did this happen? This is due to the identity of the organizer of the channel Andrei Kovalchuk - a man for whom the Russian embassies around the world were opened. Who he really is and why such a "fuss" broke out around him, will tell you after the publication of all the parts of the investigation.

At the disposal of were materials of the "cocaine case", which we begin to publish in small "portions".

In this report, the counterintelligence officer writes that on December 8, when examining the items found in the school, 12 cases with cocaine were found at the embassy, ​​which was handed over to the Argentine gendarmerie on December 14.
