The US Department of State once again has called on the Russian authorities to find and punish those responsible for the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

“Six years ago on October 7, renowned journalist Anna Politkovskaya was shot and killed in her apartment building. With her death, the Russian people lost a voice that courageously sought to report the truth. Justice will not be done until all involved in her murder have been identified and prosecuted,” Victoria Nuland, Department Spokesperson, said in the statement.

Politkovskaya, a Novaya Gazeta reporter known for her scathing criticism of both the Kremlin and the North Caucasus authorities over rights abuses, was shot dead in the lobby of her apartment building in downtown Moscow in 2006. The investigators suspect that she was killed for her expose publications.

“We will continue to shine the spotlight on this case, and others, such as American Paul Klebnikov who was gunned down in Moscow eight years ago. Journalists across the globe who speak out against abuses and work to secure fundamental freedoms for their fellow citizens must be protected,” Nuland said.

    Why Russia allows these pathetic Americans to interfere with Russia's internal affairs?

    An official STFU message to the American would be most welcomed by the whole world.
