    Second that. From my impression 2000s were the heyday of various publications about collaborators and collaboration, many like mentioned Aleksandrov of a good quality. By the present time the public interest seem to wane. There were some curios cases like the article in an official Parliamentary Newspaper praising Nazi collaborators from so-called Lokot Republic. It made a huge scandal circa 2007.

        Somewhat off topic, but has there been any well researched works coming out on WW1?

        • Not my cup of tea usually. I guess there books, PhDs and peer reviewed articles, but I can't give any qualified opinion on them. Speaking generally WWI is not a matter of huge public interest in Russia and is mostly overshadowed by other XX century events. So it happened for a number of reasons.

          • What a marvelous coverage:

            Not that I expected anything else from that factory of Russophobia called British media.

                Although this part is quite stylish, not from British media, obviously

                Yuriy Butusov, the editor of Ukrainian news website Censor said on Facebook: "A victim of propaganda showed a propagandist that his efforts to turn the Russians into half-wits are not in vain."

                • The knife attacker wrote in his blog that he was subjected to "telepathic sexual harassment" from the victim (Tatyana Felgenhaur).

                  In other words the man is a 100% wacko. Not that it stopped usual "Putin's regime kills journalists" from some media and bloggers. Some more details here:

                  • Ripples from the last week's attack still continue as major Russian media outlets are engaged in barking at each other:

                    • Who, he says, will shut their [independent journalists’] filthy mouths?
                      An historical echo of a "turbulent priest" there...

                      Is this in anyway upsetting to Russian citizens themselves ?

                      Or is it accepted as a "normal" part of the political/media game ?

                        After he was accused of being de-facto an accomplice of the assassination attempt, let's remember that. I guess, they should all take a deep breath and clam down a little. The attacker was a lunatic driven by his twisted mind, there are zero evidences that previous interpersonal quarrels in Russian media somehow triggered him.

                        How to say it to you, in Russia public figures didn't use to restraint their speeches or behavior in general. At least far less than in Western Europe/USA. The spirit is that you can say what you want and words don't mean a thing. Actually only in the last year something like a public reaction to such mishaps started to develop.

                          Yes I understand - and there's certainly historical precedent (it's even a phenomenon described in psychological literature iirc) for that, it's hard to believe whoever wrote that quote wouldn't be familiar with the legend of Henry II and the Archbishop of Canterbury

                          That's why asked yes, from previous discussions with Russian posters here I gathered they do not take politics in general and political journalism in particular so serious that they would be inclined to murder for it.

                          Seems somewhat atypical - in as far as I can judge, obviously.

                            Murder is too much, but less lethal accidents are possible. See the story of another journalist from the same radio station:
                            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yulia_Latynina#Attacks
                            (Actually the first attack on her happened 10 years ago when she became a target of tomato-throwing by some eccentric nationalists)
                            which provides some contexts for the present disproportional reaction.
