The “Anna” Conspiracy

Russia and free speech have been one of the topics of this blog ever since Anna Politkovskaya was murdered in Moscow.

It looks like Russain prosectors have charged ten people with her murder.

Russian prosecutors have arrested 10 people in connection with the murder of investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya and will soon charge them, the country’s chief prosecutor said on Monday.

Prosecutor-General Yuri Chaika said the suspects were part of an organized crime group that might also be linked to the 2004 murder in Moscow of U.S. reporter Paul Klebnikov and central bank deputy chief Andrei Kozlov.

It looks like there’s just one crime group in the whole of Russia and any (all) murders in the 2004-2007 period will be “connected” to it. Needless to say, even Russian media are sceptic about this.
