Russian opposition targeted year after Nemtsov’s assassination


Critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin will soon be marking one year since the assassination of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was shot in the back February 27, 2015, while walking near the walls of the Kremlin.

While one of the five suspects in the murder was deputy commander of a security battalion loyal to the pro-Putin Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, Russian prosecutors completed their investigation of the five last month without questioning Kadyrov, as Nemtsov supporters had demanded.

Meanwhile, authorities are dismissing Kadyrov’s threats against other opposition leaders, while blocking efforts to memorialize Nemtsov.
