7 Malaysians Injured in Fire

Seven students of the Russian State Medical University, all Malaysian citizens, were hospitalized early Sunday after a fire broke out on the 11th floor of their dormitory in southwestern Moscow, RIA-Novosti reported.

All victims had smoke poisoning, and one female student also received burns covering 20 percent of her body, an Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman told RIA-Novosti.

The fire was started by a heater unit that ignited the wallpaper in the hall of the dormitory after being left on for the night, he said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
