Politkovskakya Remembered

The murder of Russian journalist Anna Poliykovskaya continues to reverberate. This week Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty held conference to mark the anniversary of her murder. At the conference Edward Lucas, deputy editor of the international section of the "Economist" said that, Anna's murder was a symptom of a process that started with the failure to eradicate the KGB and has "accelerated more when Putin took over..." Lucas believes that repression continues to increase in Russia.

Anna's important, posthumously published,  memoir A Russian Diary should be read by all.
