The Finnish newspaper Iltalehti, in its article on the epidemic of an infectious disease that occurred more than 100 years ago, said that the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin died not from his wounds during a duel with Georges Dantes, but from tuberculosis.
The list of deaths from this infectious disease also includes Anton Chekhov, Franz Kafka, George Orwell, Emily Bronte and Frederic Chopin. “These are those who died with a sufficient degree of confidence from tuberculosis,” the journalists say.
RIA Novosti notes that the article was criticized by many readers. One of the users in the comments reminded the publication of the duel of the Russian poet and asked to correct errors and inaccuracies. To this remark, the authors replied that “there are many versions of the death of celebrities, and an alternative opinion is permissible.”
Earlier it became known that in the city of Michurinsk, Tambov region, at the age of 82, Pushkin’s great-great-granddaughter, Professor Galina Usova, died. She was a blood relative of the poet through her great-grandmother Natalia Vorontsova-Velyaminova.
In June last year it was reported that the most famous work of Pushkin among Russians was “The Tale of Tsar Saltan”. The most popular works of the classic include the novel “Eugene Onegin”, as well as the poem “Ruslan and Lyudmila” and the story “The Captain’s Daughter”.
