Please join us to commemorate Boris Nemtsov, a Russian opposition politician and an outspoken critic of Russian president Vladimir Putin.
2 years ago, on February 27, 2015, Boris Nemtsov was assassinated as he walked across a bridge just yards from the Kremlin. Five men, all ethnic Chechens with apparent connections to Chehen governor Ramzan Kadyrov, were arrested and charged with Boris Nemtsov contract killing. However, Kadyrov and his closest peers related to the killers were not questioned by investigators. All CCTV cameras around Kremlin that could have caught the murder were dysfunctional, according to the government officials. Kadyrov called the triggerman Zaur Dadaev a “true patriot of Russia” and said “everybody knows” that Ruslan Geremeyev was not involved in the murder. Ruslan Geremeyev, who has deep connections to Kadyrov’s inner circle, spent time at the Moscow apartment where the assassins stayed during the weeks before the killing and drove together with Dadaev to a Moscow airport and boarded a flight to Chechnya the day after the murder.
Putin’s regime is responsible for covering up and hiding the connections between Ramzan Kadyrov and the killers of Boris Nemtsov. It cannot be tolerated, as well as the Russian government’s growing intolerance of all forms of dissent and independent expression.
