Elsa Vidal, the head of the Europe/Ex-USSR desk voiced her condolences and support to the Markelov family on the press freedom organisation’s behalf.Hundreds of people, including diplomats and human rights activists, accompanied Markelov’s brother and window during a ceremony marked by expressions of grief and emotion. No government representative attended the funeral.“The silence of the Russian authorities after this courageous and exemplary lawyer’s murder casts a disturbing shadow over the future of the rule of law in Russia,” Reporters Without Borders said.Alexander Cherkasov of the human rights NGO Memorial said: “The absence of the Russian authorities and the lack of official reactions is an outrage.” Lev Ponomarev of Human Rights Movement said: “Foreign officials have issued statements but not our elected officials. There is always a double standard in this kind of case. When there are reactions, they are minimal and very often negative.”As a human rights lawyer, Markelov specialised in Chechnya and press cases. He had acted for Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist murdered in Moscow in 2006, and Mikhael Beketov, a journalist who is still hospitalised as a result of a violent attack last November. He was murdered just after giving a news conference in the city centre on 19 January.A funeral service was also held today for Anastasia Baburova, the Novaya Gazeta journalist who was fatally shot when she tried to prevent Markelov’s murderer from getting away.

  • Whicker: Astros’ late win gives this World Series some fire

    first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Dodgers played their most reliable card after they led, 3-1. They went bust. Jansen, asked to get six outs, was taken deep by Marwin Gonzalez in the top of the ninth.Cody Bellinger sent a high screamer off Ken Giles with two out in the Dodger ninth, but it died short of the track and the Dodgers had to fend off the best offensive team in the majors without Jansen. It did not go well.Make no mistake. This game was Houston’s lifeline. They got six starry innings out of Justin Verlander and found themselves trailing, even though the Dodgers had only two hits. A loss would have sent them down 0-2 with nothing to show for the fine pitching of starters Dallas Keuchel and Verlander.Dave Roberts went for the jugular, the way he often does, pulling Rich Hill after four fine innings, getting one pitch (a double play) from Tony Watson, unaccountably beginning the seventh inning with Ross Stripling, who walked Gonzalez and was out of there.This moved up everyone’s timetable. Brandon Morrow got three outs and then was lifted after Alex Bregman led off the eighth with a double. That was the cue for Jansen, who had blown only one save in the regular season in a game the Dodgers ended up winning. But Correa dribbled a single up the middle that scored Bregman and cut the lead to 3-2.These Dodgers knew how severe Verlander could be. On Aug. 20 Verlander, pitching for the Tigers, mystified the Dodgers with a two-hitter through eight innings. The only player to hurt Verlander that day was Curtis Granderson, with a home run. Granderson isn’t on the Dodgers World Series roster.“They didn’t want us to sweep them that day,” remembered Manager Dave Roberts. “Verlander was pitching like it was a playoff game. The thing I learned is that he has a lot of weapons.”In the first four innings on Wednesday, Verlander threw 32 pitches clocked anywhere from 95 to 98 mph.In the fifth inning Verlander got to a 2-and-0 count on Joc Pederson. Verlander fell behind on curves and then got a strike. His next pitch was a slider at 88 mph, and Pederson did not let that favor go unpunished. He ripped a drive to right field as the overheated crowd began to build hope. The ball disappeared and Pederson cavorted around the bases, a symbol of these uninhibited baseball times.The Dodgers had escaped their captor and were tied, 1-1.In the sixth, Corey Seager zoned in on a 97 mph, 0-and-2 fastball and sent it into the skies. When it scaled the left-center wall, the Dodgers led, 3-1, and Verlander stoically took the throw from home umpire Paul Nauert with his bare hand. He would leave after six of the best innings you’ll see.The next five innings brought something Dodgers fans haven’t really seen all years. Now there’s no assurance they haven’t seen the last of their Dodgers. LOS ANGELES — Smoke hung over Dodger Stadium and wafted into lungs that were already exhausted.On the field, a World Series game was never more than half-contained.The Dodgers had a 3-1 lead with Kenley Jansen on the mound, the 2017 version of checkmate. The Astros not only tied it off Jansen, they launched two 10th-inning home runs off Josh Fields and took a two-run lead, with Carlos Correa turning his bat into a helicopter as he saw it leave.Flip the script. The Astros would be going home on a magic carpet. The Dodgers would be trying to gather themselves with their most unshakable truth exposed.center_img But this is postseason baseball and it doesn’t end when the music comes up. Yasiel Puig whaled a home run to left field to cut it to 5-4. Logan Forsythe coaxed a walk off Ken Giles, got to second on a wild pitch, and pinch-hitter Kiké Hernandez, who isn’t supposed to hit right-handers, drilled a game-tying single into center field as Dodger Stadium literally shook.It took another home run, this one by Houston’s George Springer, to enforce quiet again. That happened in the 11th, with ex-Angel Cameron Maybin aboard.By then, with a brush fire burning nearby, the Dodgers were looking for the Granite Mountain Hotshots in their bullpen and finding none.The Series is 1-1 with the Astros’ 7-6 win, featuring a total of six home runs in the ninth, 10th and 11th innings.Jose Altuve had just gone deep off Josh Fields to open the 10th. Correa then followed with another homer and, when he was sure it was gone, he made his bat fly, a gesture that will be remembered in the Dodgers’ dugout and memorialized on every cable show from here to Channel 999.last_img read more
