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?

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 ...

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).
