Anna Politkovskaya murdered

Recommended Posts

For those of you who don't know, Anna Politkovskaya as a journalist for the Moscow-based free newspaper Novaya Gazeta.

She was often threatened for her life and harrassed by government officials, her colleagues murdered, etc. For her comments, books and articles about russian govenrment oppression and war crimes.

Mostly she was known from her criticism against the war in Chechnya.


more about her in her wikipedia section:



Basically this means a new chapter in Russian policy against govenment opposition.










Prosecutors said an unknown person clad in black shoot Politkovskaya in the chest and head at 17.15 Moscow time (1:15 p.m. GMT) on Saturday after apparently waiting for the reporter at an elevator to her apartment on Lesnaya Street in downtown Moscow.


They also said the killer knew an entry code to her building and was aware of her movements and time schedule during the day.


"It was a premeditated and well-planned crime," the police source said. "However, it is not clear why the killer did not destroy a surveillance camera and did not attempt to hide his face."


The source said the killer could be simply eliminated by those who possibly ordered the murder.

So much for the people that call our government evil and fascists. I don't think the U.S. government is funding hit contracts on Cindy Shehan and Hilary Clinton.
