Russia's Afghan drugs crisis

The Kremlin is training Afghan forces in an effort to stop the flow of heroin reaching Russia.


    Up to 2.5 million Russians are drug addicts, mostly hooked on heroin.

    The Kremlin wants NATO to help stop the flow of illegal substances from Afghanistan and accuses the alliance of ignoring Afghan poppy production.

    Al Jazeera's Neave Barker has gained rare access to a military facility in St Petersburg, where Afghan forces are being trained in narcotics control.
