Dr. Didier Raoult, the famous French infectious disease specialist, creator and director of the Mediterranean University-Clinical Institute of Infectious Diseases, used chloroquine for treatment. The results of Dr. Raoult and his institute were outstanding: by the end of March, only 10 of the 2,400 people who received treatment at his institute had died. [—] For 80 years, chloroquine has been a cheap, common, safe generic. And only when it turned out that the medicine was priced at 4 cents, it was established that it couldn’t cure COVID-19 because it would potentially be too cheap and accessible. Another promising drug was remdesivir, an Ebola drug developed by Gilead Sciences. And what? On April 23rd, WHO “accidentally” posted on its website test results that showed that remdesivir was no good.
On the 75th anniversary of the victory, the State Department is making another cynical attempt to rewrite history. America is trying to deny the decisive contribution of the Soviet people in the victory over Nazism.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on WWII and the West. The accusation against the US came amid the 75th anniversary of Victory Day after the US Embassy in Hungary announced a competition for "proposals for programmes that foster truthful recognition and remembrance of the tragedies of the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the long road to freedom that followed." What angered pro-Kremlin media is that, amongst others, the proposals should "focus on individual experiences and oral histories... under the tyranny of the Soviet Union". Mentioning Soviet tyranny in Hungary is not historical revisionism, it is acknowledging well-documented facts. In 1956, Soviets viciously crushed a spontaneous national uprising led by Hungarian Prime Minister Imre Nagy. Moscow then backed a new breakaway Hungarian government led by Janos Kadar, whose stated purpose was to destroy Mr Nagy's "counter-revolution". Read more about the Hungarian uprising here. Western historians acknowledge the role played by the USSR in defeating Nazism and do not question the Soviet contribution to the victory in WWII and the status of the USSR as a country which had won.
