The biggest problem remains impunity in attacks against journalists.

Recuadro: El asesinato no resuelto de Natalya Estemirova

El bien desarrollado aparato de seguridad de Rusia tiene la capacidad investigativa y procesal para enjuiciar a los sospechosos de los 14 asesinatos no resueltos de periodistas que tuvieron lugar en este país en el último decenio, al menos según las palabras de sus propios líderes. En un anuncio televisado efectuado en enero de 2014, el titular del Comité Investigativo, Aleksandr Bastrykin, afirmó con satisfacción que el 90 por ciento de los homicidios ocurridos en Rusia son resueltos. Es verdad que el Kremlin ha logrado avances, luego de prolongados retrasos, en la obtención de condenas en el caso de Anna Politkovskaya. Sin embargo, en otros casos donde los periodistas son las víctimas, las investigaciones tienden a detenerse, en particular cuando apuntan a sospechosos políticamente incómodos. Pocos casos demuestran mejor este patrón que el del asesinato de la destacada defensora de los derechos humanos y periodista Natalya Estemirova.
