BBC interview with Anya Sarang

Heroin use in Russia is a major problem. Up to two million people are believed to use the drug and heroin addiction kills thirty thousand people every year. But now it has a rival…a cheaper, homemade substitute. It’s been dubbed ” Krokodil”, so-called because users develop a scaly, crocodile-type skin. In the worst cases, its effects can be horrific , causing flesh to rot away leaving bones exposed.

Anya Sarang heads the Moscow-based Andrey Rylkov Foundation which works with addicts. On May 15, 2012, she was interviewed by Julian Keene, presenter at the World Today, BBC World Service.
