Russian rights activist Natalya Estemirova murdered: "Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, was said to have been 'indignant' over the killing but there was no response from Mr Putin, the prime minister, who appointed Mr Kadyrov to restore order in the troubled republic. Mr Putin was criticised in 2006 after he remained silent for three days following the murder of Anna Politkovskaya, the journalist who campaigned on injustices in Chechnya." (Telegraph)
It is said that Putin intends to run again for President. It's up to people in Russia to realise that their country is sleepwalking into disaster.
