Journalism Is Dangerous to Life in Russia

According to the recent report, a total of 341 journalists were killed or reported missing in Russia over the 20 years.

      That figure includes those correspondents who died in war conflicts, terrorist attacks and anti-terrorist operations, as well as those who lost their lives in “questionable circumstances” in peace time, and also those reported missing.

      The report, based on the Russian Union of Journalists’ statistics, doesn't specify whether all the deaths were results of the journalists’ professional activity.

      Dagestan is the most dangerous region to report from, with 16 Russian journalists killed in the North Caucasus republic over the past 15 years.

      According to an independent US Committee to Protect Journalists, Russia is the third most dangerous country in the world for reporters, after Algeria and Iraq.

      The Commitee has also released the list of killed journalists in 2012. According to it, 67 correspondents were killed across the world as a direct result of their professional activity. One of the them is Russian Kazbek Gekkiyev, 28, a presenter on state TV was killed in the North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria earlier this month, allegedly by Islamic militants.
