The Moscow City Court has sentenced to jail terms ranging from 12 years to life five Chechen men whom a jury found guilty last month of the murder in October 2006 of investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

All five pleaded not guilty.In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Politkovskaya won widespread respect and renown for her coverage of the fighting in Chechnya, the misery and human rights violations that ensued, and corruption and brutality among the pro-Moscow leadership Russian President Vladimir Putin installed to succeed democratically elected Chechen President Aslan Maskhadov.
