    An open letter to everyone who thinks journalists are enemies of the peopleYou often hear these days that journalists are generically enemies of the people Anna Politkovskaya was a journalist so I guess that made her specifically an enemy of the people But let's try and be precise No one can really be an enemy of all the people; p

    Dated Very dated The discussion about army though not only Russian army should have been mentioned but the whole post Soviet block and its extreme hardships very well done and true but dated by about a decade Which is only expected since the author sadly was killed in 2006 Today it's gotten reformed even if not to the Sw

    Yet another example of how Anna Politkovskaya was a courageous representative of truth on this damaged and confused planet She sheds light on the misery and harm induced by the flagrant abuse and elected ignorance of the powers that be in Putin’s Russia Throughout this book as well as her others she exhibits an open minded willingness to grasp for the truth Her way could never have been comfortable In her search she was not on

    I've signally failed here I read maybe 30 pages of this to find that it is so horrifying I can't stand to continue And then again I've failed with Winter is Coming by Garry Kasparov because his style makes me distrust everything he saysI'm moving on from bothI spent a lot of time with my Russian friend Genia before she died talking about Russ

    Ms Politkovskaya exposes several layers of corruption and malfeasance in Putin’s Russia She takes us through the disastrous war in Chechnya where Russian soldiers are underpaid or not paid at all This would seem to be endemic to the Russian army where during the Afghanistan war the same corruption happened – actual weapons were sold to the Mujahideen in order to make money The brutality of the Russian towards the Che

    Politkovskaya's bleak outlook can be a bit hard to take in large doses I picked up this book to re read in light of the current situation in Ukraine Putin's Russia is one that is unseen and virtually unfathomable to western readers especially those that haven't spent a lot of time on the ground outside of Moscow or St Pet

    I have to admit I don't care overly much for Anna Politkovskaya's writing style An objective reporter she is not or rather was not she was murdered a few years after publishing this book; her indignation at the social ills she exposes comes across loud and clear and she freuently goes so far as to tell her reader to share her indignation occasionally to the point of being rather insistent Personally I would

A former KGB spy Vladimir Putin is one of the world’s most enigmatic figures This is his RussiaInternationally admired for her fearless reporting award winning journalist Anna Politkovskaya turns her steely gaze on President Putin and his early regime in this explosive bookFrom Putin’s tyrannical grip on ordinary citizens to rampant corruption in highest ranks of the government An open letter to everyone who thinks journalists are enemies of the peopleYou often hear these days that journalists are generically enemies of the people Anna Politkovskaya was a journalist so I guess that made her specifically an enemy of the people But let s try and be precise No one can really be an enemy of all the people people have such different agendas that you re almost certain to end up being on somebody s side In practice you re going to be an enemy of one part of the people and a friend of another part of the people and then there will most likely be a third part that doesn t much care one way or the other So looking at this book of which part of the people was Politkovskaya an enemyPolitkovskaya is mostly writing about the Russia of the early 21st century during the first four years of Putin s reign and she certainly seems to be taking sides If you happened to be one of the people who according to her account got extremely rich by bribing judges to rule that your takeovers of former state owned companies were not fraudulent and that your subseuent asset stripping of those companies was fully legal I m pretty sure you d consider her your enemy She names names and provides a lot of details And it s not just the oligarchs Many of the judges who are claimed to have been paid off would no doubt also have considered her their enemy I am not so certain about the people who had worked at the companies that got sold and asset stripped and then found they had no job They wouldn t necessarily think she was their enemy In fact they might even think she was their friend But I guess they re less important they were just losersPerhaps this was the Politkovskaya s big problem that she liked losers She seems to have spent a lot of time talking with members of the Russian armed forces I m sure that Colonel Budanov who was convicted of abducting and murdering a young Chechen girl after a lengthy series of trials considered Politkovskaya his enemy And I would imagine that the many senior Russian military officers politicians and psychiatrists who tried to defend Budanov also considered her their enemy The Chechen family whose daughter was kidnapped raped and strangled may have thought she was their friend but they were obviously losers And as for her description of the special forces veteran who had carried out dozens of insanely dangerous missions been wounded multiple times but then got on the wrong side of his commanding officer when he snapped one day and called him a coward who d just sat behind a desk while he d been out risking his life well I think the commanding office who is described in a most unflattering light must also have decided Politkovskaya was his enemy The special forces guy may have liked her another loser If he d had any sense he d obviously have put his skills at the service of the Russian Mob who are very happy to recruit that kind of person and pay well He seems to have been burdened with a ludicrously sensitive conscience Politkovskaya was certainly an enemy of the people who decided to end the Nord Ost theater siege by gassing the entire audience resulting in over two hundred civilian casualties She insisted on following up the story in uite unnecessary detail for example suggesting that many lives might have been saved if only the authorities had made preparations to have adeuate medical care available The judge who presided over the according to her description cursory and insulting inuest must also have thought she was an enemy It s possible that some of the victims families considered her a friend For example the wife of the young musician with the Chechen name whose husband apparently received no medical attention at all and was left to asphyxiate I need hardly point out that Chechens are Muslims and as such are automatically losers Whose side are you onLast but not least I rather think Vladimir Putin considered Politkovskaya an enemy She says some very unflattering things about him and as usual backs them up with annoying facts If you re a friend or admirer of Putin you may be relieved to hear that this enemy of the people was killed in a professional looking hit on October 7 2006 Some misguided citizens say they re sorry she s no longer with us But you know losers
