MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. Assessments by the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for AIDS in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Michel Kazatchkine, severely distort the real situation with drug abusers in Crimea, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

The ministry commented on the UN special envoy’s recent statements on the allegedly tragic situation with former patients, who underwent the so-called “substitution therapy” in Crimea before the peninsula’s reunification with Russia.

“The assessments by the UN Secretary General’s special envoy grossly distort the real situation with drug abusers in Crimea. They are politicized and create a cheap propaganda effect,” the ministry said.

“We call on Michel Kazatchkine in his assessments on the situation of drugs abusers in Crimea to be based on official statistics and to use real data given by corresponding state structures of the Russian Federation and relevant international organizations,” the ministry said.
