Vladimir Kara-Murza is a Russian journalist and advocate of free speech. He is a dissident and has been poisoned before – allegedly by the Kremlin. He has fallen ill with similar symptoms again and poison is once more suspected. Keep him in your thoughts.

Masha Gessen writes expertly on the first poisoning of Kara-Murza and the climate of fear that is created by Putin towards journalists in The New Yorker.

Another update: Kara-Murza survived his SECOND poisoning and describes in horrific and blood curdling detail the events of his attempted murder and recovery to Richard Engel. What a brave man. Inspiring.
