Historical Notes: Politkovskaya was a fierce critic of Putin, whom she believed had failed to shake off his past as a KGB agent.She accused him of crushing liberty, stifling freedom and dragging Russia back into its authoritarian Soviet past."Why do I so dislike Putin?" she wrote in her book 'Putin's Russia' which was widely published overseas but not in Russia."I dislike him for ... his cynicism, for his racism, for his lies ... for the massacre of the innocents which went on throughout his first term as president".
