Alexander Krashevski, who says he looks older, but is only 35 knocks back a shot of medical spirit. An alcoholic, he started drinking at school when he was 14. <br />
Alexander was originally from Murmansk City, capital of Murmansk Province. Four years ago, he and his 26 year old brother, Yuri, moved to Revda, a crumbling 'Mono-city' where the whole town is hanging on the fate of a single, dying factory. The local population is falling sharply, replaced, in part, by an influx of alcoholics like Alexander in search of cheap living. /Felix Features
