    Ah, nope. Russian FSB, mafia and those in control regularly whack anyone who gets in
    their way or "dissidents." At least she was shot and not poisioned with Polonium.

    Well, is there anything that actually links her death to Russian authorities?
    You know, it is not as if Russia has total control on Tchetchenya...

    It would take an awful gullible person not to believe putin is still calling the shots over there. That would definitely be the place to start this investigation.

    What does this one incident have to do with Russia and the Russian people?

    As a comparison more Americans are murdered at the hands of their fellow Americans every year than by any one else or any other cause, does this mean Americans are a bunch of knuckle dragging savages?
