Muratov

Also, my respect for Muratov dropped when I heard that he had wanted to shut Novaya Gazeta down after Anya's murder.
It is the responsibility of Muratov, and his colleagues to speak the truth.  And yeah, it sucks that the government is after them, and is scared of them, but that is your job.  You have a patriotic duty to speak out.  And walking away from that duty is criminal.
So, thank you to all the employees of Novaya Gazeta who continue to fight for their country.
