Gathering in Moscow to remember Anna Politkovskaya in 2010
In a piece marking six years since Anna Politkovskaya was gunned down in her Moscow apartment building, the director of RFE/RL's Russian Service, Masha Gessen, writes in the "International Herald Tribune's" Latitude blog:

"Politkovskaya was not the first journalist to be murdered in Putin’s Russia; the country has consistently been ranked by the Committee to Protect Journalists as one of the world’s most dangerous places to be a reporter. Nor was it the most brutal killing in recent years. But in part because the victim was a woman, in part because the murder occurred in broad daylight, and in part because it took place on Putin’s birthday, Politkovskaya’s death signaled a turning point for many people."
