    How you say defenestration in Russian

    Three Russian doctors have fallen from hospital windows in two weeks, amid reports of dire conditions
    By Isabelle Khurshudyan
    May 6, 2020 at 2:17 p.m. EDT

    The narrator identified himself as Alexander Kosyakin and his colleague as Alexander Shulepov. Shulepov had just learned that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, Kosyakin said, yet “the head doctor forces us to continue working, and what can we do in the situation?”

    “We haven’t been released from our shift,” Shulepov said. Both work in Voronezh, about 300 miles south of Moscow.

    In a second video released days later by the press secretary of the regional health department, Shulepov backed off those comments, saying that he had been “emotional” and that his boss did eventually tell him to stop working.

    Shulepov was admitted to the hospital, and it was there on May 1 that he fell from a second-floor window in what local authorities have called an accident.

    Shulepov, who is in critical condition with a skull fracture, is the third Russian medical professional in two weeks to mysteriously fall from a hospital window. The other two died.

    It was an accident. He survived.

    In China, those accidents don't happen.

    How you say defenestration in Russian?

    I don't understand the statement that this doesn't occur in China. Self defenestration has reportedly been an ongoing issue in Apple factories and others; thus the rumors about suicide nets being installed.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    In China troublesome doctors don't have "accidents" but are disappeared by the government who later reports they died of the Chicom coronavirus in spite of "heroic efforts" to save them.

    Maybe they should take their cue from what nations practicing Sharia Law does to gays. Take the survivors back up into the building and have them try again until they get it right.

    The Saudi school of fiqh doesn't extend much past Saudi Arabia.

    FWICT Iran does not follow Saudi interpretations of Sharia (what with the former being Shiite and the latter being Sunni), but they still toss gays from tall buildings all the same.
