FSB Interrogates Esquire Russia Reporter

The Russian media reported that the Federal Security Service (FSB) has interrogated a reporter from the Russian edition of Esquire regarding an interview with a human rights activist which was published in the magazine last year.

According to the information, on September 4, reporter Svetlana Reiter was questioned at FSB headquarters outside of Lubyanka metro station in Moscow because of an interview she did with Igor Kalyapin, head of the Nizhny Novgorod Committee Against Torture, for the September 2011 issue of Esquire. It covered the disappearance of civilians in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. In the interview, Kalyapin accused the pro-Russian Chechen authorities of refusing to investigate kidnappings and threats against human rights defenders who dare to report these crimes.

Recall that Esquire is one of the Russia’s most prominent general-interest magazines and it periodically gains attention for articles featuring criticism of authorities.
