  2. Are the thugs directly employed by the Russian Federation or are they acting independently?

  3. Sam, I wish I knew who did that. The attack on Kashin was very unexpected and hardly explainable. He didn’t investigate corruption or business conflicts, had no connection with Chechnya or Caucasus–the most dangerous areas. He was writing about the opposition and the Kremlin, street protests, youth groups etc.

    The one who did that was apparently quite sure that they’ll stay unpunished, but I don’t know who the hell it was. There are many possible versions, but none of them seems credible enough.

    Mr. Medvedev knows the entire civilized world is watching closely. Let’s hope the investigation proceeds quickly, and prosecution of these thugs and their backers is forthcoming.
