Russia: Anti-Drugs - The Hard Way

Russia: Anti-Drugs - The Hard Way

Yekaterinburg is Russia's third largest town, and like many others, it is flooded with cheap narcotics from Afghanistan - currently the world's largest heroin producer. Igor Varov runs the controversial detox program that is part of a bigger campaign called "Town Without Drugs." Like many Russians, Varov has given up on the police and the medical profession in the hard battle against heroin. He puts his own life at risk, staging violent raids on drug dealers and even allying with the local mafia. Yet, as this program shows, he and those dedicated to the program will fight the drugs at any cost to give Russia's youth a chance at a better future. Produced by ABC Australia. 2008 JSCA 15 min.
