I had forgotten about how many poor peoples there are in Russia, I just recently watched a Al J documentary about some poor living on a trash heap.
Sad for these peoples wherever in our world..

Russia bath lotion kills 48 drinkers in Irkutsk



At least 48 people have died in the Siberian city of Irkutsk after drinking bath essence, Russian authorities say.

The hawthorn-scented liquid was consumed as if it were alcohol, according to Russia's Investigative Committee.

Several others are in a serious condition. Two people have been detained over the deaths and police are removing bottles from shops.

Investigators said a warning that it should not be swallowed was ignored.

The product, called Boyaryshnik (Hawthorn), was found to contain methanol, a toxin found in antifreeze. A state of emergency has been declared in Irkutsk, and Russia's top investigative agency opened an enquiry into the incident.

Your link is broken.

I think you should flesh out your OP more too. There's nothing there.

Sad that people died, but it's kind of hard to be sympathetic.

They make it sound like it's totally normal to drink chemicals.

Sounds more a testament to their alcoholism to me, rather than poverty.
