Or the murder of his critics, like journalist Anna Politkovskaya? Or the poisoning with radioactive polonium of Alexander Litvinenko, who tried to shed light on Putin's secret police thugs? Or the recent use of a weapons-grade nerve agent in England against two Russians of whom Putin disapproved? Are the ...

Anna Politkovskaya, who revealed the truth about events in Chechnya to the country and the world, was shot to death in 2006. In 2009, Natalya Estemirova, Stanislav Markelov, and Anastasia Baburova were killed. Even for Russia, six killed at the same newspaper is a horrible record. Even more horribly ...
Since 1989, the James Joyce Ramble has petitioned on behalf of writers such as Vaclav Havel, Xu Wenli, Aung San Suu Ky, Daniel Pearl, Anna Politkovskaya, and Rael Badwawi, who is still in a Saudi Arabian prison, sentenced to 10 years for writing words of dissent. Dedham nonprofits can socially ...

He will then be interrned in Troekurovskiy Cemetery, alongside murdered journalist Anna Politkovskaya, Russian director Elem Klimov, and director and screenwriter ...
There have been moments of lucidity—shocks to our collective but misplaced optimism—but those have been moments (Anna Politkovskaya's murder in 2006; the invasion of Ukraine in 2014). They have been eclipsed by our desire to believe that the only things that really separated the United States and ...

Budanov in turn was murdered gangland-style in Moscow in June 2011. Baburova worked for Novaya Gazeta, an opposition newspaper. Journalist Anna Politkovskaya of that paper was very prominent in investigation of human-rights abuses in Chechnya. She was murdered in 2006. In a dramatic interview ...
About two weeks earlier, he had publicly accused Putin of having sanctioned the murder of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya on Putin's 54th birthday, Oct. 7.

This is a man who doesn't bemoan “fake news” on Twitter, but whose critics – like rival politician Boris Nemtsov and journalist Anna Politkovskaya – have a nasty habit of getting themselves murdered.

Anna Politkovskaya, a Novaya Gazeta reporter, was among them, as The Guardian reported. And journalists aren't alone.

Only a month before Alexander Litvinenko's 2006 death by Polonium-210 in London, the journalist Anna Politkovskaya was murdered in the elevator of her Moscow apartment building.

Justice for Anna Politkovskaya was a long time coming; and when it arrived, it was not entirely satisfactory. After trials, acquittals and retrials, six men were eventually convicted of the journalist's murder: one was sentenced to 11 years in a penal colony in 2012; the remaining five were handed life sentences ...
This is a change of policy for Five Stars.

investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya—in Turkey and during the Balkan wars.

Tragically, Nemtsov joins a long list of political dissidents who were killed in Russia over the past two decades, including Anna Politkovskaya, Stanislav Markelov, Natalia Estemirova, and many others. Nonetheless, Nemtsov's murder stands out from the rest because he once was a member of Russia's ...

Using an exotic chemical agent produced by a single lab in the Soviet Union isn't one of them. There are inconspicuous moments at which to do it. The eve of Putin's re-coronation isn't one of them. It recalls the murder of the journalist and Kremlin scourge Anna Politkovskaya on Oct. 7, 2006 — Putin's 54th ...
