Pps just wanted to say about 2 awful events that happened in Russia this week:
Russian authorities started real ethnical purges against Georgians (because of the conflict in political affairs with Georgia), including kicking out of schools children of Georgian nationality, repression against of Georgian writers etc (before these discriminations was a rule mostly towards Chechens).
And second yesterday Anna Politkovskaya was killed with a shot in the lift of her house. She was one of the few journalists that took a risk to write the truth about some things that Russian authorities tried to hide – what's going on in Chechnya, repressions and "cleanup" of ordinary people in Blagoveschenk etc. If you want to know more about the war in Chechnya – find books of Politkovskaya, they're translated to many languages.
