People sometimes pay with their lives for saying aloud what they think. In fact, one can even get killed for giving me information. I am not the only one in danger. I have examples that prove it.

— Anna Politkovskaya

The most memorable Anna Politkovskaya quotes that are glad to read

We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, it's total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial -whatever our special services, Putin's guard dogs, see fit.


What matter is the information, not what you think about it.


We live now in an era where normal values have been displaced.

The good is called bad, the bad - good.
