Right uppercut from Putin. Everyone—from the media to government to business to ordinary Russian viewers—understood Putin’s veiled threat. He was stronger than the richest of the rich. Any disfavored oligarch would be prosecuted and held accountable for his anything-goes behavior in the 1990s. As of that pivotal day, all of Russia’s wealthy were on notice that they would always be subject to Putin. He stood as the man of steel, a man cut out for the times, just the sort Russians were looking for in their leadership.

She made 34 T H E C O L D E R WA R her reputation reporting from Chechnya and had raised questions about who was really behind the apartment building bombings that supposedly provoked Putin’s attack on Chechnya in 1999. Politkovskaya had already survived a poisoning attempt in 2004. Shortly before her death, she was warned by Alexander Litvinenko— a former FSB security oicer turned critic in exile—that her life was in imminent danger and that she should leave Russia immediately.

It suggested that the bombings had been scheduled with the knowledge of the FSB and that someone in the organization had confused the order in which the disasters were to be announced to parliament. The Volgodonsk bombing did actually happen, but not until three days later, on September 16. It, too, was a truck bomb, and it left another 17 apartment dwellers dead. By that time, in the minds of most Russians, Chechens had been ingered as the perpetrators in all four attacks. It was an easy idea to sell.
