Her body lay on the elevator floor, three bullets to her head. Now, Russia mourns her death.
On Oct. 7, journalist Anna Politkovskaya was murdered after returning home from grocery shopping. The death of this journalist might not seem important to some, but to me, her death is a loss for the whole world. Politkovskaya was a warrior. She fought against inequality and injustice. She was one of the few journalists brave enough to confront Putin’s government and expose the killings, abuses, kidnappings and other horrors experienced by people in Chechnya.
