The Dark Net Drug Market That Survived Ukraine's Civil War ( 15

Patrick O'Neill writes: As Ukraine holds on to an increasingly delicate peace, the country remains divided by armed troops. There is, however, at least one thing that moves reliably through the cities and across dangerous borders: illegal drugs sourced from the Dark Net. While the rest of the country's economy has cratered, online criminal enterprises have survived and offered a living. PsyCo, short for Psychedelic Community, is a hyperlocal market that offers delivery in hours in cities like Kiev.

    There is no civil war, only invasion and not declared war.

  • Putin is high on that as well.

      *bravo* *slowest clap

  • I believe we've had two "dark net" stories on SlashDot today (one about UK, one about Ukraine). Did an editor get busted or something?

      There is going to be a Darknet Linux and DarkBSD coming out just for this this purpose.

    Just to be clear. It's not a civil war, it's Putler's little invasion.

    • Thank you. Calling the invasion a "civil war" is pretty dishonest. Otherwise, an interesting, but pretty lightweight article.

      • It is, in fact, a civil war. This is one the reasons why there is still no martial law. One side of the civil war receives military aid from Russia but it is still a civil war.

        Don't take my word for granted, go there yourself, talk with their soldiers if you speak the language. I did.

    So you're saying a black market thrives in periods of civil unrest?


    Also, -1 for abuse of the 'hyper-' prefix on local. Local is local, you can't get more local than local, hipster.

      I too was disappointed to read "hyperlocal." The advertisement was tempting, I admit, but they can't seriously expect us to fly to Kiev to buy some dope.

  • Shouldn't this story be posted on the dark /.?
