Dmitry Muratov, the editor of Novaya Gazeta where Anna Politkovskaya worked before her 2006 murder, said Wednesday, June 13, 2012, in an open letter to Investigative Committee chief Alexander Bastrykin that he should offer security guarantees to reporter Sergei Sokolov. Muratov said that Bastrykin was angered by a Novaya Gazeta article that accused him of failing to punish the perpetrators of a 2010 killing of 12 people, including four children, by a gang in southern Russia.
