Monument to Boris Nemtsov

The opposition members asked the Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin to erect a monument to Boris Nemtsov who was killed at the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge. The corresponding document has already been sent to the capital Mayor's Office, as TASS writes.

      According to the agency’s data, the appeal was signed by the co-chairman of the party “RPR-Parnas” Mikhail Kasyanov, a member of its political council Ilya Yashin, a former candidate for Mayor of Moscow Aleksei Navalny and other activists. “Boris Nemtsov came down in the history of our country as a brilliant politician and a state figure whose fate is inseparably associated with the fate of the new democratic Russia” - the document says. On April 7 at 11 a.m. the campaign in the memory of Boris Nemtsov titled “A Minute of NON-Slience” began at the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge. The organizers call everyone who was not indifferent to the politician to honor his memory, stopping for a minute or honking the horn of one’s car.

      The 55-year-old Boris Nemtsov was killed in the centre of Moscow on the night of February 28. Unknown persons riding in a white car shot him in the back at least six times while he was walking through Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge with his friend. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case by the articles “Murder” and “Illegal arms trafficking”. The investigation is considering several versions of the event. In particular, the murder could be a provocation for destabilization of the political situation in Russia. The “version associated with the Islamic extremist trace” is also considered: Nemtsov “was threatened in connection with his position regarding the shooting of the journalists of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris”. In addition, the crime could be related to the inner conflict in Ukraine, as well as commercial activities of Nemtsov or someone’s personal dislike towards him.
