Moscow: the madness escalates

Anna Politkovskaya — the very well-known independent/opposition Russian journalist — was shot in Moscow at about 4pm today.

Is it a present for Putin on his 54th birthday, which is today, October 7?

Happy birthday, Klein Zaches!

    I think you sum it up quite well in one of your posts, where you say “the Kremlin has gone mad” – I think this applies to almost every aspect of the present Russian government’s methods of “policy”, and it does seem convenient that a person who got murdered was one causing great embarrassment to the Birthday Boy. Anyone who dares to speak their mind or fight for a cause not looked upon favourably by the Kremlin can consider themselves a target.
