    Greece remains the epicentre of the EU debt crisis with international creditors still unsure about handing Athens another cash injection. While in meantime, a new survey suggests the debt burden is literally killing Greeks pushing them to drug dependence and even suicide. And the economic crunch is likely to take its toll on citizens of other European states as RT's Daniel Bushell explains.

    A lot of the "solutions" proposed are solutions for the medium or long term.

    Sadly the people who need to see this system reform most?

    They don't have a long or medium term.

    Hence things like Food suppliment programs tie them over (or not) until the economy recovers.
