‘No drug damage’


MOSCOW: Russia’s foreign ministry is brushing off suggestion­s the discovery of hundreds of kilograms of cocaine in a school attached to Moscow’s Argentinia­n embassy harmed the mission’s reputation.

“The success of this operation was ensured by the effective actions of the Russian ambassador and diplomatic personnel,” it said on Friday.

Argentina’s security minister announced this week 389kg drugs were discovered in luggage in 2016. Five people were arrested last year.
