Vale Anna Politkovskaya


Anna Politkovskaya

The world lost a rare and courageous individual this week with the murder of Russian investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya. The award-winning journalist, whose coverage for Russian newspaperNovaya Gazeta consistently held the Putin Government to account, was in Australia for the Sydney Writers Festival in May. She spoke to New Matilda‘s Antony Loewenstein (audio file)
