How Russia became the new global leader in the war on drugs

“Central to Russia’s interventions was an insistence that the words “harm reduction” not be included in the document.”

“Russian approaches to drug dependence are in contradiction to virtually all international scientific standards,” said Daniel Wolfe, director of the International Harm Reduction Development Program at the Open Society Foundations. “Russian narcologists — their version of drug dependence specialists — have practiced such therapies as hypnotizing patients and telling them that something in their body will explode if they use drugs, ‘flogging’ therapy, and putting patients into comas and administering electric shocks. There is no evidence base or reputable science on any of these approaches.”
