Why are Americans always killing schoolboys and students in schools and universities? Why America is doing it?

And that journalists worked in state TV.

You are sounds stupid as usual.

State TV means that they were supporting the official State point of view.

In Dagestan it could be not safe.

And for you to prolong the logic that you can miss , they were killed by those whom you name rebels.

Your rebels kill not only Russian journalists.
Remember American Paul Klebnikov ?

Is that clear for you now ?

I'm sure YOU ARE glad , anyway , if something like that happened in Russia.
No matter WHO is doing that and WHY.

Even if aliens from a mars would do that , you would blame the Russia as totaltarian country.

So your telling me that Russia has a State TV that supports the state? WTF? So how can journalist that work for the State TV be biased?

This "State TV" sounds exactly like the "State TV" that they have in Belarus.

And I thought only country's such as Belarus, China, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia had such channels as "State TV".

So Russia also has this "State TV". o_O

Surely , Russia also has this "State TV"

"But a jury at the Moscow City Court voted to acquit Kazbek Dukuzov, 32, and Musa Vakhayev, 42, who were both charged with the actual shooting death of Klebnikov.

A third suspect, Fail Sadretdinov, faced charges of attempted murder in a separate case and organising the gang

Klebnikov's death caused an international outcry and led to speculation that it might have been linked to investigations he was involved in regarding the Russian business world."
