Given that the Russians seem hell-bent on causing problems there, radiation treatments can probably be streamlined by having patients just go stand over by Chernobyl.

Can anyone arrange a transport of Putin to oncology treatment in Kyiv?  Should make for some fun hijinks.

Shhhh   Don't tell the Russians.  Cancer Hospitals are at the top of the list of Primary Military Targets.

Cannibalizing depleted uranium shells for radiation treatment?

Jeez, I don't know who is more badass. The doctors, or the patients, or the maintenance/utilities crew, and the obvious army in Ukraine. Give them all first row tickets to kicking Putin in the balls.

I'm not sure where you think they would go, subby.

I agree that the staff of the hospital deserves the Hero tag, but it's not actually surprising news here. Cancer doesn't really 'pause' well.

Would someone please explain to a dumb guy what "fresh hell" is intended to mean? Have seen this phrasing a lot lately but don't understand it.

I understand the concept of hell but what does the "fresh" part convey? Is it a brand new, more terrifying version of hell, or something?

The entire country has become an oncology ward fighting the cancer known as Russia.

Cancer patients getting radiation therapy are probably in one of the safest places. RT equipment tends to be installed underground, with thick concrete walls (~4-6 feet). You also don't just pack these things up and move them overnight.

"Good news! You won't be dying of cancer!"

"Bad news. The bombing starts in five minutes."

I think I saw a TV show episode like that, where a kid was sick and started drinking some local water and miraculously got better, only to find out that the water source was actually heavy water, and it was basically doing the chemo's work on his cancer...

I see that you have read your Solzhenitsyn.

The only radiotherapy that Putin deserves is a night camped on the Elephant's foot at Chernobyl.

Only one treatment will do.
