One of the people denying the HIV virus is a prominent figure of Orthodoxy, owner of a mass of regalia and orders, a frequent guest on television and an expert - Father Dimitri Smirnov. “There is not a single person who has seen the human immunodeficiency virus,” broadcasts Father Dmitry Smirnov, a popular spiritual leader via YouTube. “And AIDS arises from four reasons: stress, depression, vaccination and intoxication.” Yulia Vishnevetskaya made a good report on AIDS dissidents
The pseudoscientific theory that the HIV virus does not exist swept the Russian Internet ... DW spoke to a woman who believed in this theory and refused treatment.
I find this theory very harmful, everyone involved in its promotion, including the aforementioned Orthodox figure, is criminals.
I believe that this, like all pseudoscience, is a big stupidity that very much interferes with real scientists. Because of this, many people die (and sometimes such, I'm not afraid of this word, HIV-denying Ghouls, occupy high positions, for example Thabo Mbeki, which killed 330 thousand people in South Africa). And rightly so, that groups of "HIV-dissenters in social networks are being blocked! Pseudoscience should not spread.
