Interestingly enough, there is a long tribute to Politkovskaya on her condolences weblog, signed by "Achyad Idigov, head of the committee of external relatons of the parliament of the Chechen Republic - Ichkeriya, plenipotentiary representative of the CR-Ichkeriya in exile."

Don't know if it's geniune. Don't know if any of the entries are.

A few more comments from Anya's condolences weblog:
Anna annoyed the authorities, like a bone in their throat, and they killed her. They will stop at nothing! Power corrupts.

How awful it is to live in our country... This grief is impossible to put into words. We were so proud that there could be such journalists - courageous, fearless, brave. We are many more than they authorities think, and together we'll set things right.

Goodbye, Anna! You were a talanted journalist and a fearless person. I hope your courage helps to awaken the sleeping conscience of the average man and nourish the fighters.

I feel as I did once when I heard of Galich's death. And if the government was involved, you'll never know. A bright memory of her!

I hope that these curs answer in this life. Anna was an honest, brave person.

A terrible death. I'm very sad for this remarkable person. I'm very sad for all the people who have no rights whatsoever, including a right to life. The pomp of holidays and fireworks in their honor - that is all the authorities are interested in. They kill people and go unpunished, homes are falling apart from age and disrepair, people are buried alive while asleep. And there is no end to this, no limit. Forgive us, Anya!

Poor Russia! Really you need another 300 years to understand who is manipulating, scaring, and killing you. If you can mourn Anna today and then leave her in peace, then she wasn't needed by you in life. Today it's too late, however. Anna knew what she was doing and you should too. Condolences to both of you.

The murder of any journalist is terrible. It is a gag, by which they shut our mouth. I am sorry for Anna, such a talented and purposeful person. It is pitiful and terrible that deeds such as this are still possible...
