Thank you for posting. I had heard of the beatings and killings but not about how HIV+ people are being treated there. All of it together is such bad news, really terrible. Completely counter to doing their population any good. And for there to not be a strategy for HIV treatment and prevention to be in place, that just makes everything so much worse on top of a really bad situation.
I am really glad to read of the positive stories, my thoughts go out to all LGBT people in Russia.
