Nikolay Kolesnikov Refutes Reports On His Death

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Armenian officials denied news agencies’ reports that a Russian patient who has been undergoing AIDS treatment in Armenia has died of the disease. The head of a government medical agency–Emil Gabrielian–described claims that Nikolay Kolesnikov is dead as an "ugly lie".

"Kolesnikov has not died and has no such intention for the next 30 to 40 years," he said. The Russian patient is due in Yerevan next month for another medical check-up in the Armenicum AIDS clinic. The false information was spread by unnamed outside forces that are "not interested in Armenicum’s recognition as a cure against AIDS," Gabrielian said.
