A COURAGEOUS JOURNALIST REMEMBERED
On October 7, 2006, Anna Politkovskaya, who had reported on human-rights violations in Chechnya and the North Caucasus and was a strong critic of the Kremlin, was shot dead in her Moscow apartment block, robbing Russia of one of its bravest investigative journalists.
On the first anniversary of her death, RFE/RL paid tribute to Politkovskaya and looked at her legacy and the media environment in Russia today at the conference "Russia One Year After the Murder of Anna Politkovskaya."
On our special webpage are a multimedia tribute to Politkovskaya presented at the conference, as well as video of the conference's speakers and panel discussions. See RFE/RL Remembers Anna Politkovskaya
