"His name is Ramzan Kadyrov"

The man with the golden gun, Ramzan Kadyrov, has won his libel suit against Memorial.

On the plus side, the Moscow court went easy on the group. Instead of paying Kadyrov $316,100 for alleging his involvement in the murder of Natalia Estemirova, the group will only have to pay $2,347.90 in damages. Memorial chairman Oleg Orlov must also retract this statement:

"I know who is guilty of Natalia's murder. His name is Ramzan Kadyrov."

We know who has kept his honor. His name is Oleg Orlov.

Hi Eternal Remont,

Great to see that you've been covering this defamation suit, and a real shame that Kadyrov has won this farcical case. We thought you might be interested to have this article by Tanya Lokshina at Human Rights Watch on your site to supplement your coverage of the case. We hope this is useful to you. Here is the link,
