As the pandemic rages I wrote about an interesting development in Russia among Russian pandemic doctors.
It seems they are falling out windows….at least three so far….
Three Russian doctors working to treat coronavirus patients have mysteriously fallen out of windows in recent weeks, underscoring the country’s struggling health care system — and leading to suspicions of foul play.
On April 24, Natalya Lebedeva, the chief of emergency medical services at a training base for Russian astronauts, fell out of a window at the hospital where she was being treated for a Covid-19 infection and died.
Yelena Nepomnyashchaya, the top doctor at a hospital in Siberia, fell out of a window during a conference call at her hospital and died on May 1 after a week in intensive care.
The next day, ambulance doctor Alexander Shulepov fell from a second-floor window at the hospital where he worked and had been receiving treatment for Covid-19. He remains in serious condition with a fractured skull.
Russian authorities are investigating all three incidents, and there is no official indication yet of what happened to the physicians. The circumstances around their falls, though, are more than a little suspicious.
Fascinating stories……makes me suspicious of the excuses for the deaths…..
Then I read about a whistle blower in Russia that walk out a window….another window story?
A Russian police major plunged to her death not long after testifying against her old boss in a criminal-extortion case, the Moscow Times reports. The body of Yekaterina Mishkina, 37, was caught on security cameras lying near an apartment building in the city of Khabarovsk (Russia.liveaumap.com has a screen capture), where she apparently fell from the fifth floor. Security cameras are said to show her trying to reach the roof, giving up, and going back down a few flights. Unconfirmed reports say Mishkina had testified against an ex-boss who allegedly extorted money from subordinates. Seems the extortion case was opened after the former boss had gone into retirement.
Regional police in Khabarovsk, roughly 5,000 miles east of Moscow, have begun investigating Mishkina’s fall—though a spokeswoman said the lead investigator is “on yet another vacation.” A Russian news outlet is quoting an anonymous source close to the probe who said officials uncovered a note in Mishkina’s purse with a to-do list she’d only partly completed: “This indicates that what happened wasn’t spontaneous,” the source said. Mishkina was a divorcee with a 14-year-old daughter. Her death comes after at least three Russian health-care workers recently fell from windows amid the coronavirus outbreak, as have two young journalists.
What is it about Russian windows?
