Russia Leads Europe!

...in journalist killings.

According to The Moscow Times,Russia leads Europe in the number of journalists killed in homicides and accidents since 1991 and that many of the deaths were politically motivated but largely ignored by law enforcement authorities. On Monday, the International Union of Journalists presented a report that lists 312 homicides and accidents in Russia. A few hundred more deaths, and I'm pretty sure that journalist killings officially get factored into the declining population problem.
