By Will Stewart for MailOnline. A new 'mind bending' designer drug has killed 13 and poisoned almost people in Russia, and officials warn it may cause lasting brain damage.
The particular strain of drug is not known to the authorities and not yet illegal under Russian law, local media reports. The effects of the 'legal high' can be seen in a video filmed in the Siberian city of Surgut, where seven people have died and have been poisoned in the past week. A video has emerged showing the effects of a new 'legal high' which has killed 13 people in Russia. An horrific outbreak in and around the Siberian city of Surgut led to local TV highlighting three new graves of men aged around 30 at the local cemetery.
A video shows a man affected by the synthetic drug in Surgut as he is being helped by emergency staff. As he stands by a blue car, the man repeatedly gets on the ground, struggles to speak and controlling his body movements. The video shows a man affected by the synthetic drug in Surgut, Siberia as he is being helped by emergency staff.
The clip was filmed in the Siberian city of Surgut, where seven people have died and have been poisoned in the past week. Senior local health official Nadezhda Volchanina said: The use of psychoactive substances destroys brain cells and may cause serious disability and loss of memory.
Today the authorities warned that the poisoning had spread beyond Surgut in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District. Police have made a dozen arrests in Surgut and the northern Russian city of Kirov which was also targeted by ruthless drugs dealers selling the 'poison' via the internet. Police showed images of the drugs parcelled in a yellow and green covering and hidden in plastic milk bottles.
A medical professional said abusers crash cars, violently attack neighbours, or suffer seizures in which their hearts and brains stop functioning. Andrei Novikov, a senior doctor in Surgut, said: They can thrash about the ambulance or hospital emergency room. They feel that they are being persecuted. Symptoms include fear, anxiety, enlarged pupils, unsteadiness, and hallucinations. Some victims fell into a coma. Inga Snatkina, spokeswoman for the regional prosecutor in Siberia, said: The chemical substance of the cases in Surgut and Kirov is seen as linked.
