Oday’s political landscape Putin's Russia is both a gripping portrayal of a country in crisis and the testament of an extraordinary reporter‘A searing portrait of a country in disarray and of the man at its helm from the bravest of journalists’ New York Times‘Anna Politkovskaya is a heroic journalist’ Guardian ‘We will continue to learn from her for years’ Salman Rushd. 07 Oct 2006 and the author Anna Politkovskaya is murdered in the elevator of the block of flats where she lived This book is from 2004 At that time the West appeared to have a different view of Putin than we do now Politkovskaya wants to tell the truth about him She goes over the way that Russian soldiers are treated Putin s handling of the second Chechen war including a terrible incident when a Russian colonel raped and killed an 18 year old Chechen girl How a small time hoodlum can rise to be an Oligarch As you can probably guess he does not get to where he is using legal means This is how it is in Russia now you kill someone you get respect How Judges have to become corrupt or there will be conseuences as one judge will attest as he was crippled after being savagely beaten by his attackers with iron bars Almost nobody in Russia believes the Russian judicial system is fair Then there is the terrorist attack on a theatre Russian troops used gas and stormed the theatre killing all the terrorists 200 hostages were killedHer dislike of Putin is plain to see and she goes on to fully explain why There were parts in the book that I was struggling to keep up especially where she is explaining the rise of the small time hoodlum that became an oligarch It s not a book that I could have just sat and read in one reading I read it in bite sized chunks What was interesting for me is the perception of Putin then by the West compared to now Politkovskaya appeared to know the truth about him then that was slowly realised over the years by the West Unfortunately she paid the price for airing her views
