Spokesperson Nuland on the Five-Year Anniversary of the Murder of Anna Politkovskaya

Justice will not be done until all those involved in the crime are identified and prosecuted.



October 7 marks the fifth-year anniversary of the murder of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya. Her reporting on the war in the North Caucasus brought to light the violation of human rights and the suffering of the victims in this conflict. We honor Anna’s legacy as a courageous journalist.

While we welcome the recent arrest of suspects in her murder, justice will not be done until all those involved in the crime are identified and prosecuted.
