BREAKING: Russian Opposition Leader Boris Nemtsov Killed in Moscow

One of the main leaders of the Russian opposition movement and the former deputy Prime Minister, Boris Nemtsov, has been shot dead in Moscow, the local police reports.

      An unidentified attacker shot Boris Nemtsov seven or eight times in central Moscow, near the Kremlin. The opposition politician was shot in his back while he was walking with a woman.

      The reports from the press sources are very different now and will be updated soon. According to some papers, Nemtsov was shot by a group of killers who had been driving a white car or a van.

      The murder took place just a day before the "Spring" opposition meeting, which was expected to take place in Moscow on March 1. Nemtsov was registered as one the meeting's organizers.

      Boris Nemtsov was one of the most prominent Russian politicians of the early 1990's and 2000's. After serving as governor of the Novgorod region in 1991—1997, he was at one time vetted as President Boris Yeltsin's potential successor. Nemtsov was also a long time leader of the liberal Soyus Pravykh Sil (Union of Right Forces). In the 2000's Nemtsov became an opposition leader and an outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin. (source:
