Zhanna Nemtsova, the eldest daughter of the killed opposition leader, has left Russia after receiving threats, reports Joinfo.ua referring to The Times.

"The former journalist has accused the Russian leader of being "politically responsible" for the killing of her father," writes the journalist Ben Hoyle. She has also criticized the official investigation into the murder of Nemtsov.

On June 5, in an interview with The Times, Nemtsova did not say where she now lived, and said she did not know whether she would ever return to Russia.

"Anyone, who criticizes the regime and its architect Vladimir Putin, may be prosecuted, subjected to harassment, slander, imprisonment or be killed and poisoned. My father was killed for political reasons. Since then the situation has deteriorated quite rapidly," she said.

Last week, Nemtsova has learned of the sudden illness of her friend Vladimir Kara-Murza, and suggested that he might have been poisoned.
