Crimée : Drug Addicts Are Dying in Crimea Because They Can't Get Therapy

le 30 janvier 2015

[Vice] In a video appeal filmed in April by patients from opioid substitution therapy (OST) programs in Crimea, which had just been annexed by Russia, a personable man named Andrei warns: "Without this program, I may die."

Unlike in Ukraine and many Western countries, opioid substitution therapy (OST) is illegal in Russia. His words came true. Andrei hung himself in December, unable to cope after Russian authorities cut off access to OST in May.
