The drawing by Vladimir Ivanov


In her articles Anna exposed corrupt politicians, war criminals, sharply criticized the government. She was also a distinguished human rights advocate. Her murder at the hands of professional killer is another example of similar occurrences in modern Russia.

There have been other journalists in Russia who wrote the truth, but her voice sounded louder than anybody else's," Grigory Yavlinsky, leader of the Yabloko party, told
RFE/RL's Russian Service. In the end, Politkovskaya was killed because of her refusal to soften her criticism of the Kremlin, he believes. "She was not simply a political journalist; she was a political opponent of the authorities. In this case it is evident that they have destroyed a political opponent. The authorities have begun eliminating their political opponents physically."
