The Security Service of Ukraine has blocked smuggling of one particularly dangerous psychotropic substance MDMA (Ecstasy). The drugs were sent from one of the Western European countries to Ukraine, reported the SBU press service.

- A 25-year-old former employee of the leading national TV Channel bought drugs online from abroad, reads a message on the SBU website.

The police seized a drug trafficker at one of the post offices in Kiev when he was receiving another parcel with a hundred ecstasy tablets.

Currently the Security Service checks an employee of the same TV Channel for involvement in drug smuggling. The employee lives with the seized drug dealer.

- During the search of the apartment the man rented in Shevchenko district in Kyiv, the law enforcement officers seized another 66 tablets of MDMA, reported the SBU. A pre-trial investigation into the offense is underway.
