Russian reporter Borodin dead after mystery fall

Journalists in Russia have often been harassed or attacked in recent years for their work. On the same day that Maxim Borodin was found fatally injured, the editor of an official regional newspaper was assaulted in Yekaterinburg, reports say.

Much of Russia's media is controlled by the state and Russia is ranked 83rd out of 100 countries for press freedom by Freedom House.[link:http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-43781351|

2. it's an interesting account of his last days/hours

... speaking on the phone with his friend about security forces on his balcony and surrounding his building, then deciding it was just an exercise.

Then ending up discovered on the ground below his flat.

6. So many Russians seem to have terrible balance problems.

They are always falling off decks from several stories up.
