I suggest that the following question, which is deleted and invisible to users with less than 10K reputation, ought to be undeleted.
What is the English equivalent to the Russian proverb ""За битого - двух небитых дают"? [closed] (image for < 10k users)
In 2011 the question was closed and deleted because at the time it was viewed to be purely a Russian translation request. However, as most users are aware, EL&U does accept requests for idioms, expressions, and proverbs. This is one such request, the difference being the OP knew one in Russian but not its English equivalent. As a result, the title has been edited to reflect more truthfully the OP's intention.
I would like to ask the community for their opinion and consider casting their vote to undelete the question and then to reopen it. Thank you!
