Russia's HIV crisis is one of the worst in the world and the number of newly infected people has recently increased by 10 per cent.

The rise in contractions, blamed much on drug usage involving shared dirty needles, occurred although the government doubled its budget for trying to stem the spread of the disease in the last two years.

Critics say many patients are dying from the illness in the country because hospitals lack coherent and organised methods to treat them.

They also say the government's strategies of trying to fight drug dependency are not working either.
