December 1st was the World AIDS Awareness Day. "High Quality" program in the Russian section of MTV was completely devoted to Queen and Freddie. They showed some Queen videos and a small interview with Freddie (1984).

These are the cover, a paper and a poster from the November issue of "Rovesnik" magazine. Unfortunately, the paper contains nothing interesting, just some mere verbiage.
