You would imagine these guys know better than to go saying stuff about Putin

Let's just hope that whoever is doing this doesn't take a distaste for Putin.

It's to the point now where they've done it so often that they don't even try to make it look like a real suicide.  Everyone knows that they're just flinging people out of windows.  Maybe they agree with it, but they know that Putin is just murdering people and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Apparently in Russia the word 'Fell' is synonymous with 'Thrown the fark out of'.

Ok so the front of that hospital looks pretty grand but that back alley looks like it was lifted from '80's Beirut.

What's up with that?

They could help Putin fall backwards onto a knife first.

Putin is losing control over his government.
If he has to kill the rich just stay in power, then he's already lost control.

He just wants to be the winner of Survivor: Oligarch Island.

Seems he is well on his way.

The old "Pizdec Plunge", followed by the "Blyat Splat", Putin's signature move.

What do you mean?  It's right there in the article: "A packet of cigarettes is believed to have been found close to the window from which Maganov fell, leading to the supposition that he may have been smoking before falling."This was a perfectly cromulent investigation with a reasonable proximate cause of death.

Moscow is one giant Potemkin village.

Much like the military.

I'm sorry but we are not going to take steps in preventative problem solving.  We are a nation of triage where we come together after a disaster.  Well tell each other how good and great we are, tie ribbons to shiat, and thank a first responder.  Maybe if you're lucky your peer group will get a color stripe on a flag.

Aaah, Russia. The world leader in vodka and defenestration.

It's always so odd to me that the reporting about stuff like this is always worded like "this completely impenetrable mystery is just so WEIRD" as if this wasn't a blatant assassination/execution. It's not weird, it's not mysterious, it's not at all difficult to determine what happened. Russians are just clumsy as hell.

Propaganda:  it's not meant to sway the critical thinker.  Its purpose is to give the intellectual coward a place to hide.

There is something they can do about it.  Take that pile of cash they are sitting on, and have Putin assassinated.  Their own fear appears to be their downfall.  Now, you might argue it isn't fear, but instead a faint sense of humanity, but we're talking self-preservation here......
I do think this is a pretty good learning experience though...you can tell that money alone can't overthrow and authoritarian, you need some ruthless cunning behind it.

They never did.  These executions are demonstrations of power, and giving you a bullshiat excuse that you are afraid not to pretend to believe is part of that.  And when you pretend to believe, when you're afraid to speak the truth even to people you should trust, you are in fact further subjugating yourself.

Can't just shoot dissidents anymore. The army needs all the ammo they can get for their little side project they have going on.

It wasn't falling out a window that killed him. It was the sudden stop at the end of it.

"Defenestration" is such a long word and with many syllables. "Fell" is short and to the point. And besides, when's the last time you had someone say "I've been fenestrated"?  As in "I've been fenestrated by Bill Gates"? Literally no one

See a lot of people think this was murder but they just don't understand Russian culture. In Russia it is a common cultural tradition to have large windows left open regardless of season. People commonly wear roller skates indoors. And baby oil is traditionally left by windows in huge puddles.  So it might not be murder. Ya'll just ignorant.

It's probably the fact that I've never actually taken a Latin course, but it's always bothered me that it is 'defenestration' and not 'exfenestration'.  "From the window" just isn't as evocative as "Out the window".
