I've read nothing in the Moscow Times of Kozlovsky's jail term and hunger strike.
Perhaps I'm mistaken, but they seem to be ignoring this story.I'm wondering if the Russophobe or a reader knows why????
Are they afraid to cover this story?? If so, they should be better than that, and they deserve the full fury of the Russophobe.
This may be the most courageous cat in Russia and the Moscow Times gives us nothing.

You're quite correct to be concerned about the current direction in which the Moscow Times is headed, as are we. We continue to be worried as the paper publishes more and more op-ed material that seems like Kremlin propaganda, including a piece from Kremlin sycophant Edward Lozansky which will expose in our next issue. They've redesigned their website to make the rarer critical content less accessible, and they've refused to publish at least two letters to the editor from our well-known publisher Kim Zigfeld. It may well be that they are bowing to Kremlin pressure, but the jury is still out.
