Presentation in Memory of Natalya Estemirova

Italian journalist Andrea Riscassi has reported that there was a special event in Milan, Italy which was dedicated to the memory of Chechen human rights activist, Natalya Estemirova.

The Italian association “Annaviva” organized a presentation on May 20 in the People’s Library (Libreria Popolare) in Milan, which started at 8:45pm local time. Fabrizio Ossino, who just graduated from the University of Roma, presented his thesis on how the European media covered the murder of Natalya Estemirova. During the multimedia presentation of his thesis, “Natalya Estemirova: I killed the death…”, Fabrizio Ossino pointed out that in general, the Russian media did not write effective articles or news about the murder. Unfortunately the Italian media followed the publications of their Russian colleagues and simply copied their work. The German press has definitely worked better than the others.

“For us who live in Italy, it is necessary to continue to remind our politicians and also our colleagues that human rights cannot change for a few million cubic meters of gas,” said Riscassi.

Recall that Natalya Estemirova was kidnapped in front of her apartment in Grozny on July 15, 2009 and hours later her body was found in neighboring Ingushetia. Last summer, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced that they identified the killer of the Chechen human rights defender and the global media made this statement propaganda. However, so far there has been no arrest or tribunal.
