Anna Politkovskaya was an outstanding woman, devoted writer, and Human Rights activist. On October 7th 2006, a group of cowards assassinated her because they were afraid to face the truth. She was murdered because she exposed the crimes of the Russian government. Throughout the years Politkovskaya had been tracked down, followed, and investigated but that did not discourage her. Even after several failed assassination attempts, she kept going because she knew that she possessed a gift that was no match for the Russian government. She had the gift of writing, and wrote about the facts. Anna revealed the secrets that government tried kept hidden, and exposed their evil deeds. Even though her life was at stake she never gave up, she knew that it was her duty to keep the world informed. The world will never forget her. We salute Anna Politkovskaya.

Recalling a journalist and an era

By Kathy Lally
Washington Post Foreign Service
Friday, October 8, 2010; A8 

MOSCOW - Perhaps 200 people, more elderly than not, gathered Thursday in the late afternoon sunlight near a busy Moscow metro station to challenge the authorities and to remember a dead journalist.

The authorities were watching. They had dispatched three busloads of young men - and a few young women - special police in black leather jackets and black berets. An ambulance stood by.

Four years ago Thursday, at 4:03 p.m., Anna Politkovskaya, a 48-year-old reporter, was fatally shot in the elevator of her Moscow apartment building. She is one of 52 journalists killed in Russia since 1992. Her death has not been solved, though the investigation continues.

Her reporting about the war in Chechnya had angered the authorities as she traveled fearlessly in the war zone, investigating Chechen complaints of abuse at the hands of Russian soldiers and describing ...

IFJ Marks Fourth Anniversary of Anna Politkovskaya Murder by Call for Justice

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) today marked the fourth anniversary of the murder of investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya by urging the Russian authorities to ensure justice for her and her long-suffering family and colleagues.

"The way her murder has been handled is an indictment of the Russian justice system. Her family and friends have endured much distress and frustration and it is time to put an end to this."

The IFJ says the recent announcement by Russia's chief investigator of plans to re-examine 19 deaths of journalists since 2000 is a positive development but must be backed up by real deeds tackling ...
