Murder of Boris Nemtsov frightens Russian opposition

This morning, the Russian government announced the award of $ 50 thousand for help in searching the person who has committed the murder of Boris Nemtsov. According to CBS News, the Russians are shocked by the fact that the fatal shots were fired a few steps away from the Kremlin.

During a march in honor of the deceased opposition leader, the former Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov said that the murder of Nemtsov was a "turning point in the history of new Russia."

Some of the participants of the commemorative march were holding posters with the words "I'm not afraid," but in fact, many of those who share the values of democracy promoted by Nemtsov, are very afraid.

The footage from the security camera shows the killer shooting in the back of Boris Nemtsov four times, getting into a car and driving away.

55-year-old Nemtsov was Deputy Prime Minister under former President Boris Yeltsin. During Putin's presidency, he was one of the few who could criticize the regime. In just a few hours before the murder, Nemtsov was in the studio of the Russian radio station urging people to visit an opposition march the next day.

Nemtsov's lawyer said that his client received death threats due to his intention to publish a report on the Russian military intervention in Ukraine.

It should be recalled that the opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was shot dead on Friday at 11:15 p.m. near the Kremlin.

We also reported that a colleague of Boris Nemtsov, Kseniya Sobchak was already warned she would be the 'next'.
