The Russian Defense Ministry has information about numerous facts of the use of psychostimulants and narcotic drugs by the Ukrainian military, such as methadone and amphetamine. This was announced at a briefing on January 30 by the head of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Troops (RCBZ) The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Igor Kirillov.

"The Ministry of Defense of Russia has received information about numerous facts of the use of psychostimulants and narcotic drugs by Ukrainian servicemen — methadone, amphetamine. The facts of smuggling morphine into the areas of combat missions have been revealed," Kirillov said.

He also said that the United States conducted experiments related to HIV infection on the territory of Ukraine. According to him, the active actions of the Russian Defense Ministry helped to stop the implementation of US military biological programs on Ukrainian territory.

On January 24, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law toughening the responsibility of the military for non-compliance with orders, escape from the battlefield or from a military unit.

The need to adopt the law was explained by its authors — deputies of the "Servant of the People" faction — by cases of desertion, disobedience, refusal to carry out combat orders, drunkenness and drug addiction even in a combat situation.

On October 19 last year, Renat Aliyev, a Ukrainian prisoner of war, said that half of the servicemen in a number of units of the Azov terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation took drugs . According to him, if the prohibited funds ran out, the militants used ketamine from first aid kits.

In May, an ex-serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), Andrei Belousov, told how participation in hostilities on the side of the Kiev regime made him a drug addict. He noted that at some point the fighters of his battery began to consume so much that they became uncontrollable. The Kiev command even tried to redistribute them, but the situation has not changed, because the drugs from the APU have not disappeared.

On May 9, former participants of punitive operations of Ukraine against Donbass detained in the Kharkiv region said that people with criminal records, as well as alcoholics, drug addicts and people with mental problems were recruited in Ukrainian military enlistment offices.

Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special operation to protect Donbass, against the inhabitants of which Ukraine has been fighting since 2014. The decision to hold it was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to the shelling of Ukrainian troops.
