(SEMFEROPOL, Ukraine) - The new chief of the Crimean militia, Gennadiy Moskal, hasn't been in his position very long, but he is attracting attention on a regular basis.

Moskal already targeted Simferopol's Gennadiy Babenko, his assistant Chernova has been arrested, some speculate that is why president Yushchenko send him to Crimea. Now has a new show underway in the Crimea militia's yard.

Now it was a record harvest of marijuana that was found in the Kirov steppe district of Crimea. Local journalists could not imagine that this plant can grows taller than a human being.

“Crimea can change into Columbia or Afghanistan – reported Moskal – it is not (the) local plant but special seeds brought from Denmark. During September, 12 we have found 673 bushes (careful counting – auth) with the weight more than two tons with the price about $2 million.”

The chief of the Crimean militia added that country populations organize special green-house complexes for growing, and that Kirov region’s militia will be paying careful attention.

The record harvest of marijuana will be kept in Simferopol, in the basement of the building of central administrative board of militia.

To guard it, according to Moskal, there will be a, "militiaman, which does not drink, not smoke, and will answer to the Lord".
