Autism is a fast-spreading illness. No scientist is certain where it comes from or how to cure it. One thing is clear: people with autism are intelligent individuals who don’t have the mental capability to stand their ground.  As such, their well-being depends a great deal on the people around them. Join RT to see what it takes to live with autism in Russia. Meet Andrey, 31, an autism-sufferer. He has been forced to live in a care home just because his aunt was after his flat in the centre of Moscow.  And find out why Timur, 14, a talented artist and autism-sufferer, is also highly likely to end up in a care home, too.
