Russia: Prosecution's Bias in Politkovskaya Murder Trial

Window on Eurasia writes about a blog item (RUS) on the Politkovskaya murder trial posted by journalist Vadim Rechkalov (LJ user voinodel) on his blog at Moskovsky Komsomolets, a Russian daily: “Vadim Rechkalov says that a close examination of the record, including a slide show the government offered suggests that prosecutors, reflecting the views of their bosses, were more interested in discrediting her than in gaining a conviction of those against whom they had brought charges.” Rechkalov's text has generated 378 comments so far, and there are two other discussions (RUS) on his LJ blog, here and here.
