In Nizhny Novgorod, the editor-in-chief of the KozaPress publication Irina Slavina (Murakhtaeva) set herself on fire near the building of the local Interior Ministry. According to media reports, the journalist died on the spot. Yesterday her apartment was searched.

“At 15.30 on channel 112 there was a message about a fire on the street. Gorky at house 71. Upon arrival, a human body was found. The identity and causes of death are being established, "- reports the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

The information that the deceased is the chief editor of KozaPress was confirmed by a NewsNN source in the security department.

On her Facebook page an hour ago, Irina Slavina wrote: "I ask you to blame the Russian Federation for my death." A lot of comments appeared under the post. Many people cannot believe what happened.

"Lord, why so???", "My God! It can't be! Ira!!!", "Why? I sob”, “Tin, the Russian Federation is not worth it”, - friends and acquaintances write on the journalist's page.

In Nizhny Novgorod, Slavina was distinguished by opposition views. On October 1, in the morning, they came to her with searches. “12 people entered my apartment with a gas cutter and a crowbar: officers of the TFR, police, SOBR, attesting witnesses. The husband opened the door. I, being naked, was already dressing under the supervision of a lady I did not know. A search was carried out. The lawyer was not allowed to call. They were looking for brochures, leaflets, accounts of Open Russia, possibly an icon with the face of Mikhail Khodorkovsky. I have none of this. But they took what they found — all the flash drives, my laptop, my daughter’s laptop, computer, phones — not only mine, but also my husband’s — a bunch of notebooks that I scribbled on during press conferences. I was left without means of production. Everything is fine with me”, - the journalist wrote on the social network.

In the summer of 2020, Slavina was fined 65 thousand rubles for a fake about the coronavirus. She believed that this is revenge for her publications, which many officials and security officials did not like. “ And although the amount of the fine is murderous for me, the understanding that I am on the side of the world gives me strength,” the journalist wrote then. But when the case was just brought up against her, Slavina spoke of death: "For now, I just want to die".

In 2019, Slavina received a fine of 70 thousand rubles for calling the city of Shakhunya in the Nizhny Novgorod region “Shah ** ney” on her personal page on a social network. The protocol was drawn up by the E.
