Poland calls for severe punishment of Russian journalist's killers
WARSAW, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- The Polish foreign ministry on Sunday called for severe punishment of the killers of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, the PAP news agency reported.
"We hope Russia metes out severe punishment to Anna Politkovskaya's killers," Polish foreign ministry spokesman Andrzej Sados said in response to the slaying of Politkovskaya on Saturday in Moscow.
Politkovskaya, 48, a Russian investigative journalist known for her critical coverage of the war in Chechnya, was found dead on Saturday in the elevator of her Moscow apartment. She had two gunshot wounds, one to the head.
"We are deeply ... saddened by this shocking murder," Sados said, adding that Poland hopes Russia's judicial organs will find and severely punish those responsible for the killing.
Now Putin may cut off their gas supplies.
Ya think the authorities will investigate this to whoever ordered the hit?
No, no, not our good little Putin!
If necessary, Putin will find a fall guy to take the rap.
President Bush can look in his "eyes" and see whatever he wants. I wouldn't trust putin any more then I'd trust Bill Clinton with my wife or niece.
I think it is most likely they'll find and kill a fall guy and say case closed. No trial. Hope to be surprised - but don't expect to be.
I trust my wife.
Tell that to Juanita Broderick sport.
You are right there.
I'm afraid they won't catch the real killers.
Guy from opposition of course. Gary Kasparov?
We hope Russia metes out severe punishment to Anna Politkovskaya's killers
There's no way Putin and his fellow mafia thugs are going to be investigated.
Kind of reminds us of another Putin from Russian history: rasPutin.
I agree. I don't trust the old KGB officer a bit. He's done a lot to roll back progress and take away freedom in Russia.
. . .indeed and Amen to Anna Politkovskaya.
I had just been thinking of the common thread; of any means; justifying the end goals of those who share the underpinnings of a singular evil idiology; i.e. all variations of Leftist/totalitarian et als. . .including radical Islam'.
It surely fits what has been happening here at home. . .as we see how the hands of the 'Left' are beheading - figuratively speaking, of course - their Repub opposition as we approach Elections.

Of cause we couldn't handle it without Polish foreign ministry opinion:).
Good job Lizol.
good to hear ya again.
Scary times huh?
If the Cold War is over then somebody better tell the people who are running Russia. The USSR just went through a period of downsizing.
Thanks JB...been around ;^). . .and yes, very scary; and particularly since there are so many in our country are not able; or are unwilling, to recognize the 'evil within and inherent' in the current representation of the Democrat Party.
(Did this get even a blink - yet - on Fox News?). . .
The old bury your head in the sand crowd and maybe the problems will go away.
We'll se how you're going to handle it.
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...
