Default Putin opposition leader assassinated outside the Kremlin

Quote:
Boris Nemtsov was one of Russia's leading economic reformers in the 1990s (file photo from 2009)
A leading Russian opposition politician, former deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov, has been shot dead in Moscow, Russian officials say.

An unidentified attacker shot Mr Nemtsov four times in central Moscow, a source in the law enforcement bodies told Russia's Interfax news agency.

He was reportedly shot near the Kremlin while walking with a woman.

He died just before a march in Moscow against the war in Ukraine which he was actively promoting.

Mr Nemtsov, 55, served as first deputy prime minister under the late President Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s.

He had earned a reputation as an economic reformer while governor of one of Russia's biggest cities, Nizhny Novgorod.

Falling out of favour with Yeltsin's successor, Vladimir Putin, Mr Nemtsov became an outspoken opposition politician.

Mr Putin has been widely accused of fomenting the bloody rebellion in east Ukraine - an accusation he denies.

'Putin's aggression'
According to Russian-language news website Meduza, "several people" got out of a car and shot him.

He was shot in the back with a pistol from a white car which fled the scene, Interfax's source said.

One of the politician's colleagues in his RPR-Parnassus party, Ilya Yashin, confirmed Mr Nemtsov's death.

"Unfortunately I can see the corpse of Boris Nemtsov in front of me now," he was quoted as saying by Russia's lenta.ru news website. "At the Bolshoy Zamoskvoretsky Bridge. I see the body and lots of police around it."

In his last tweet, Mr Nemtsov sent out an appeal for Russia's divided opposition to unite at an anti-war march he was planning for Sunday.

"If you support stopping Russia's war with Ukraine, if you support stopping Putin's aggression, come to the Spring March in Maryino on 1 March," he wrote.


Are you in Russia? What is your reaction to the death of Boris Nemtsov? You can email haveyoursay@bbc.co.uk.

Critics of Putin, beware. Oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky accused Putin of corruption and wound up spending ten years in prison and labor camps. Alexander Litvinenko accused state security services of organizing a coup to put Putin in power. He was poisoned by a lethal dose of radioactive polonium. And Viktor Yushchenko, the former Ukrainian president, poisoned, disfigured and nearly killed by a toxic dose of dioxin.

Oh boy. Just wait for all the tinfoil hat kooks to start calling this a 'political conspiracy.'


This was an authentic act of terror, just like 9/11. Government's do not harm their own people. Period.

May he burn in hell forever. One of Americas puppets during Yeltsins regime. Happy hes dead. The fact that they claim he was "a top economic reformer during the 90s" says everyting that needs to be said about his role in Russian History.

Watch the Western Media now begin to use him as a symobl of democracy and freedom

Borderline dictator has political foe assassinated = plausible theory.

US orchestrates 9/11 using mostly Saudi-born terrorists as an excuse to invade Afghanistan and Iraq (or whatever bullshit illuminati-related reason you can come up with) = illogical and stupid theory.

Nemstov was a has-been politician who hadnt been relevant in Russian politics for close to 20 years. Not only was he a payed agent of America/The West, he was also very close (Like most political figures) to organised crime. It could have been anyone that ordered him killed.

I'm hoping however that it was in fact Putin. Any traitors that are going to allow America and the West to continue their expansionist policies into Slavic land deserve to be hung, drawn and quartered. Just like their NAZI allies were in ww2. Dont **** with the Slavs. Were not Arabs. Or Africans. We fukced up Napolean and Hitler when they tried to exterminate our people and culture. We kicked out the Mongols and the Ottomans out of Europe. Dont think youll ever get rid of us.

Who's getting rid of anyone? Putin wants Ukraine and that's fine. That's his play. There's no way US is gonna go to conventional war with Russia. But f*ck up their economy? Hell yeah. Soviet Union days are over. Putin getting a little delusional. His chance at running a superpower is over

Don't think anyone wants to genocide your people. Just protect their interests. That's what it all comes down to. Putin's got his, US has its. Unfortunately unlike Hitler and Napoleon, Russia is in the aggressive position here. Their objective is to expand and the US is defending. I like our chances
