Russia is a dangerous place to be a journalist. At least 19 have been killed since 2000, according to the international Committee to Protect Journalists, and 18 of the cases remain unsolved. In the most high-profile case, three men were tried for the 2006 shooting death of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, a Kremlin critic and human rights activist, but were acquitted in February 2009. Five months later Politskovskaya's friend and ally Natalia Estermirova, a human rights activist, was kidnapped and murdered.
