MOSCOW, January 19, /ITAR-TASS/. Human rights activists and anti-fascists have finished a march in central Moscow held in memory of the well-known lawyer, Stanislav Markelov, and the journalist of the Novaya Gazeta daily, Anastasiya Baburova, who were killed in Moscow in 2009.
About 400 people, including journalists and bloggers, took part in a commemorative action organized by Russian human rights activist Lev Ponomarev. They laid down flowers at the murder site.
Stanislav Markelov, the lawyer of the inter-republican College of Advocates, and part-time correspondent of the Novaya Gazeta daily Anastasiya Baburova were killed on Moscow’s Prechistenka Street on January 19, 2009.
Tikhonov, Khasis and a group of unidentified persons knocked together a group for murdering Markelov whom they disliked because he defended the rights of victims of ethnically motivated crimes
On 2011, the Moscow City Court passed a verdict on Nikita Tikhonov and Yevgeniya Khasis who were accused of killing Markelov and Baburova.
Tikhonov was sentenced to life while Khasis got 18 years in jail. The judges based their decision on a verdict passed by the jury.
