The history of Putin Russia is ongoing murder of activists who seek to fight for the rights of individuals. President Dimitry Medvedev on Friday ordered Chechen President Ranzan Kadyrov to take a serious approach to finding out who was responsible for the recent murders of two activists in Chechnya. “A whole sequence of political murders and assassination attempts have the aim of destabilizing the situation in the Caucasus. The president of the Chechnya republic should do everything he can to find and expose those responsible.”
There is one problem– what if the president of the Chechen republic has had a hand in the deaths of these activists? Human rights groups have accused the Chechen government of complicity in the murders of several activists. Most probably Medvedev’s call for action is merely a response to criticism from European leaders like Chancellor Merkel.
