Police have found a greenhouse for the cultivation of illegal drugs concealed in the back of an old bus in the Moscow region.

The LiAZ bus was parked in the yard of a summer house in the Orekhovo-Zuevsky district when police discovered its surprising contents, Interfax reported Wednesday.

Inside the bus there was a greenhouse equipped for growing marijuana and other drugs complete with air-conditioning and irrigation systems, the police department said.

Police detained a 23-year-old from the Sakhalin region in connection with the greenhouse.

They seized approximately 400 grams of cannabis.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
