A top Russian fashion model has been jailed for 18 months after she spoke openly about using drugs in a magazine article.
Anna Glazova, 28, was arrested in January last year after she spoke frankly about her heroin use.
She claimed she had regularly used the drug for a decade while working as a model, saying that she continued to work despite her heavy drug use.
She said that her relatives understood her drug use, and that she lived a perfectly normal life despite regular usage of heroin which she described as "a model's constant companion".

However authorities took a dim view of the article from the previous month in December that was written under the pseudonym "Teo".
They tracked her down and arrested her after she tried to go on the run.
Anna has earned the tasteless nickname "Russia’s most beautiful drug addict" but officials who accused her of using drugs also say that she was glamorising use of heroin, and have ordered the article taken down.
Anna, who also writes on social media in support of drug legalisation, had clearly not expected to be jailed and was furious when she was told she would have to spend 18 months in prison after she was found guilty.
When news of the jail term was announced, she even took to social media to accuse her lawyer of doing a bad job, saying he was “legally illiterate” and accused him of coming up with proposals “that would obviously not benefit me as a client”.
