Russian Activist Andrei Kulagin Found Dead

I'm really sick of writing posts about dead Russian activists! Dear God, when will this stop happening?

According to the Associated Press, Russian human rights activist Andrei Kulagin was found dead in a sand pit on July 10, weeks after he went missing. His family did not want his death publicized before his funeral.

Kulagin was head the Karelia regional branch of the rights organization Spravedlivost, which means Justice. He had fought for the humane treatment of prisoners and worked closely with prison and jail officials in Karelia.

Right was NYT, when it said the names of Russian activists are on a grim death list and they are aware of it.
