In Russia, this number is 80 deaths per million, say the authors of the report.

The report States that although information about the reduction of demand for heroin in Russia, the total number of seizures of shipments of drugs on the "North road" in 2013 decreased, which was due to more effective work by intercepting the supplies within Afghanistan itself. It is also noted that in Russia the process of replacing the heroin with cheaper alternatives - acetylated opium and desomorphine. Also, the UN experts emphasize the growth of cocaine use in Russia.

He Also noticed that it is necessary to make more efforts to shape attitudes about addiction As a chronic illness.

"There is no quick and easy cure for addiction, and we must invest in long-term, medical, scientific solutions" - quoted Fedotov in a statement to the UN statement.
