"I told her to leave Russia"

Toby Eades, Anna Politkovskaya’s London literary agent, talks to the Sunday Times about her murder.

I told her I really thought Vladimir Putin, the president, would kill her. “I would only leave after Putin’s gone,” she said, obstinate as ever. “If I am killed, would my children have to pay back my publishing advance?”
