NOTE: Today we publish two lengthy interviews with True/Slant Russia bloggers one of which, with egghead blogger Mark Adomanis, is exclusive to La Russophobe. The other took place on the august virtual pages of the New Yorker magazine’s website as a companion to an article in the actual hard copy by Julia Ioffe, who we identifed a few issues back as one of our top-ten Russia bloggers in the world.  It’s exciting to see the world of Russia blogging growing more dynamic and diverse as the power of the blogosphere continues to grow, and we are pleased to do our part to contribute to that growth.

    And then make them say it’s the journalists’ fault.

    The journalist, Pyotr Lipatov, would not budge, but he said he later realized what the investigators were seeking: for him to help them justify his severe beating at the hands of plainclothes police officers at the rally in this Moscow suburb.

    The interrogation occurred more than a year after the beating in March 2009. The investigators tried to make Mr. Lipatov confess that he was responsible soon after The New York Times asked them why they had not charged the police officers.
