(4) Annals of "Pacified"Chechnya: The Blood Still Flows

NOTE: Check out La Russophobe's latest installment on the Pajamas Media megablog, where she's a Russia correspondent, reviewing the assassination of Anna Politkovskaya and the subsequent further crackdown on freedom of expression in neo-Soviet Russia (Pajamas has also translated a number of jokes about Putin from the Russian blogosphere on the occasion of Putin's birthday, the same day that Politkovskaya was killed -- making many think the killing was a "birthday present" -- and as Mark MacKinnon notes, sickeningly, far more Russians celebrated the birthday than remembered the murder). Robert Amsterdam (wait for the link, it may take a moment to load) who knew Anna personally, has also published a fantastic memorial edition on his blog, including an original translation of her work, an essay by Grigori Pasko, many wonderful photographs and a link to a video interview.
