Russia, Ukraine: “Obligatory Media Post-Mortems”

Natalia Antonova's texts in the Moscow News, on the “disappearance” and death of 9-month-old Anya Shkaptsova and on other recent deaths of children in Bryansk, Russia, and a text in the Guardian's Comment is Free on the rape and murder of Oksana Makar in Mykolayiv, Ukraine. And a note on Natalia's blog, on what it takes to cover these topics: “[...] you write something like that, and then you need a hot shower and an opportunity to burst into tears without anyone looking. All in a week’s work.”
