Pavel Lobkov is one of Russia's most famous journalists. In 2015 he shocked the nation by announcing on the air that he had been diagnosed with HIV sometime in 2003 after a routine HIV test. He has since become an HIV/AIDS rights activist. Russia needs it. The stigma against HIV and AIDS in that country has contributed significantly to large numbers of people with HIV refusing to seek testing and treatment. Lobkov hopes to change that by becoming Russia's first openly HIV positive public figure.

He currently works for Dozhd also known as Rain TV.
