I’m still in Ryazan so this is going to be short. I’m sure all of you have heard about Anna Politovskaya murder in her apartment building lift yesterday. I saw it on NTV news last night, where it is a major headline. Video camera’s caught images of the alleged assailant. NTV didn’t beat around the bush and called it a political murder. No doubt. A short while ago, I caught a news report on the radio that said the same thing. We can all guess why she was murdered given her coverage of Chechnya. The question now is who. More to follow in the coming days after I return to Moscow and a decent internet connection.

I also haven’t be able to follow the comments section. So apologies for my silence.
