    It was Joseph de Maistre who wrote in 1811 "Every nation gets the government it deserves."

    Boris Nemtsov was an opposition to Putin (although pro in 1998). Shot and killed today. Just like many others before him (Listyev 20 years ago almost to the day).

    And, of course, the police are following up on clues and will make an arrest shortly*.

    * - Sometime in the distant future after everyone involved has been dead and buried for decades.

    Had he been killed anywhere but near Kremlin, I could have slightly assumed that Putin indeed had something to do with it...
    The assassination of Nemtsov is most likely related to his political activity in Yaroslavl region or business interests in the energy sector.

    I doubt we will ever know the full truth.

    Why did you blame everything on Putin then?

    Because where there is smoke there's fire? He was definitely involved but under strong KGB guise of hiding everything, the facts will never see the light of day.

    Change your name to PutinBot btw, more suiting.

    Unlike such an "expert" like you Im actually interested in investigative journalism and draw my conclusions by studying similar cases that took place in the past. Usually in the cases like this you have to follow money.
    For instance, Governor Tsvetkov was assasinated for redistributing the fishing quotas in favor of affiliated companies, thus undermining
    the revenues of rival companies. Major Karayev investigated the illegal sale of public property by his predecessors. And CBR Head Deputy Kozlov revoked licences of the banks involved in money laundering.
    In the case of Nemtsov Im 99% percent sure tracks sooner or later will lead either to Yaroslavl Duma or to his energy companies.

    Then you better change your AIM account. Its quite ironic that author of most of the bullshit written about Russia on this site is actually Russian speaker. Good luck to you with your inferiority complex!

    Spin, spin, spin. You guys are experts on this. Is that what it's called in Russia? "Investigative Reporting"? Nemtsov, Politkovskaya, Magnitsky, Litvinenko, Estemirova, Markelov, Baburova, Yushenkov, Klebnikov, Berezovsky etc... How long is the list now? Follow the money? Then there's the Russian kangaroo courts and all of the people opposing your new Stalin ending up in jail.

    And the "bullshit" about Russia is mostly anti Putin not anti Russians. People outside of the US confuse criticism with being anti, specifically being anti leadership with being against the people. Same goes for Chavez and Venezuela, Lulu and Brazil, Putin and Russia, anyone these days Ukraine decides to prope, etc.
