Пропавшие без вести - List of journalists killed in Russia - Netflix
The dangers to journalists in Russia have been well known since the
early 1990s but concern over the number of unsolved killings soared
after Anna Politkovskaya's murder in Moscow on 7 October 2006. While
international monitors mentioned a dozen deaths, some sources within
Russia talked of over two hundred fatalities. The evidence has since
been examined and documented in two reports, published in Russian and
English, by international organizations. These revealed a basic
confusion in terminology that explained the seemingly enormous numerical
discrepancy: statistics of premature death among journalists (from work
accidents, crossfire incidents, and purely criminal or domestic cases of
manslaughter) were repeatedly equated with the much smaller number of
targeted (contract) killings or work-related murders. The Remembrance
Day of Journalists Killed in the Line of Duty in Russia is observed on
15 December every year.
