MOSCOW, June 28 (Itar-Tass) - The number of drug addicts in Russia decreased by 500,000 in 2012 and now is eight million, according to a report on the drug situation in Russia says.
“The State Anti-drug Committee has approved the draft report to the president. We made such a report last year and will make them annually. If we compare the data, we can see a decrease in the number of drug addicts from 8.5 million to eight million,” Russia’s anti-drug chief Viktor Ivanov said on Friday after a meeting of the State Antidrug Committee.
According to Ivanov, these results were achieved thanks to campaigns for promoting healthy lifestyles the government and local authorities are conducting among people.
“We supply them with relevant information. Volunteer movements also help to influence population,” he added.
