Quite a litany of horror; don't go mad, get old or addicted to drugs in Russia....

Many people have died in fires at state institutions across Russia over recent years.
In September 2013, 37 people died in a fire that swept through a psychiatric hospital in the north-western Novgorod region.
Several months earlier, a blaze at another psychiatric hospital near Moscow killed 38 people.
In 2009, 23 people died at an old people's home in the north-west Komi region, while in 2007, 63 were killed at a home in Krasnodar, southern Russia.
In 2006, a fire at a Moscow drug rehabilitation clinic killed 45 women.

In fairness to RE-tweet[Russia Today] they pointed out this was not the first time...early indicators are a 'wiring fault' in an elderly wooden building
