Novaya Gazeta is no stranger to hostility and controversy. The crusading Russian newspaper is known for powerful investigations — and in Russia, this sort of work can provoke an angry reaction. The paper's star reporter Anna Politkovskaya was shot dead in her apartment building in 2006. Exactly who ordered her murder has never been confirmed.
"She Broke the Story of Chechnya’s Anti-Gay Purge. Now, She Says She Has to Flee Russia." is from the April 15, 2017 World section of The Washington Post. It was written by Adam Taylor and narrated by Sam Scholl.
