Sick Russian Nurses in Storage Room Spark Outrage

This video of sick nurses hooked up to IV drips in the storage room of a hospital in the republic of Dagestan sparked outrage on Russian social media.

While officials said the women were not ill with coronavirus, the head of infectious diseases in the hospital was fired after the video appeared online.

The nurses have since been moved to a real hospital ward to be treated.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
