Anna Politkovskaya

An outstandingly courageous critic of the current Russian regime, journalist and author Anna Politkovskaya has been the recipient of numerous international honours. Sadly she was found shot dead in a lift at her apartment block in Moscow on 7 October 2006. She was one of our most welcome guests at the Book Festival in 2005 and spoke compellingly about her work and also her fears for her life. This talk is translated from Russian.
