Summary

The HIV and AIDS issue is just another component of the information war the West is waging against Russia. Condoms are not effective at preventing HIV, on the contrary, they contribute to the spreading of the epidemic.

Disproof

According to Vadim Pokrovsky, the head of Russia's federal AIDS center, Russia's AIDS epidemic is at a dangerous tipping point after the number of people registered HIV-positive passed the 1 million mark. The Russian epidemic has been driven by very harsh drug laws and a lack of harm reduction and needle exchange programs, as well as repressive homosexuality laws, according to UNAIDS and the World Health Organization (bit.ly/1lCgvRk), . // Condoms are a critical component in a comprehensive and sustainable approach to the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) (bit.ly/1JT9GT6), .
