A comment to my post on “Progress in Rethinking AIDS” mentioned a petition by a Russian group. That group had organized an Alternative HIV/AIDS Conference in 2008 in Ekaterinaburg. One of the organizers, Irina Sazonova, has sent the following furter information.
(I recall that Russian TV had given excellent coverage to the Alternative HIV/AIDS Conference in Vienna in 2010 organized by Uta Santos-König and Christian Fiala).
One of the members of the Russian group sent the following:
“This is petition, which made up of HIV + people with whom I corresponded and organized in http://vk.com/vichnet http://vk.com/spida_net
Four years ago, I and Nadezda Hramova (she also performed at our conference) offered to meet HIV + victims of AIDS medicine.
They organized yet two conference (correct to say meeting HIV + ) , there was Ageev, Avdusin and Dmitrevskij. I do not participate, because while I had a holiday and I was in Hungary.
Yes, this resolution contains mostly our resolution from the Ekaterinburg Conference.
Unfortunately, now I can not now made translation.
importantly there is:
1. Cancel, repealed the law of the Russian Federation dated March 30, 1995 № 38 – FZ “On the Prevention of Spread of the disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus ( HIV ) ” due to the absence of infectious AIDS epidemic based on coined the term HIV and illegitimacy its application in the framework of the Constitution of the Russian Federation .
2 . Initiate the establishment of an independent commission to study the facts refuting immunodeficiency virus nature and the recognition of insolvency theory of AIDS.
3 . Prohibit the use of chemicals in ARV treatment regimens affected persons and their use as prophylaxis because of their devastating effects on the human body.
4 .

I signed and send my colleagues and friends. If you think it possible to sign, subscribe please! Tell, please, to all our friends that this right resolution (very solid and accurate petition).”
Another member of the group added, in an e-mail to David Crowe:
“David Yes, Of course, it is the same group and we all are very grateful to Irina Mikhaylovna Sazonova and Vladimir Vladimirovich Ageev (professor, pathologist), Andrey Dmitrievskiy (a journalist) and others for their support, for their courage, for the fact that they are not afraid to express their opinion in the country, although their lives may be in danger. After the conference in Yekaterinburg the HIV dissidents idea became very popular in Russia, people, mostly of course, victims of AIDS industry, wake up and started fighting. Irina Mikhailovna is the person who saved a lot of people, lot of children from poisoning with AZT. There are some local organizations that support us. We are very glad that you are also supporting us.”
