The Russian journalist and writer, Yulia Latynina, told Radio “Echo of Moscow” that unknown persons, probably of South Ossetian origin, were following her movements. The opposition news site, Yezhednevny Zhurnal, received an email, which said: “Shut Latynina’s mouth. Her fate has already been decided. She cannot escape. Sorry for her family.” Latynina said that although she receives many threats, this time she takes it seriously.
