The First Crimean Victims

Creator: ENPUD, Alliance Ukraine

Description:806 patients of the opioid substitution therapy in Crimea were deprived of treatment after OST was prohibited by the Russian authorities in May 2014. As a consequence of this crime the patients just began to... pass away! Two of the 10 people filmed in this video are already dead. In memory of them, Igor Kouzmenko, an OST patient from Simferopol, filmed a unique video recording his friends begging for salvation. How many more victims will be claimed before this terrible mistake is finally recognized?
