Drug-related crimes in Ukraine (8 months of 2022)

Situation with drug-related crimes partly has refuted shaped before thesis that the 2022 Russian military invasion to Ukraine “cut” crime statistics because drugs are another matter.

Moreover, the 2022 crime statistics show that the number of drug-related crimes for the period of wartime eight months of 2022 appears even bigger than the number of the same crimes for the whole relatively ‘peacetime’ 2015 or 2016.

Moreover, we can expect that the number of drug-related crimes in 2022 could be bigger for the period of the last 10 years.

Additionally, it should be noted that the wartime period shows stable increase in numbers of drug-related crimes.
