www.dw.de/

Colleagues and friends of a killed opposition leader Boris Nemtsov completed and presented the special report about Russian military actions on the territory of Ukraine that he didn't finish. The 62-page book named 'Putin:War' is published in 2000 copies and also availbale on putin-itogi.ru (only in the Russian translation so far).

      As it is said in the report, Nemtsov started to gather materials about Russia’s military presence in Ukraine in the beginning of 2015. However, he had no chance to finish his work. On February 27, Boris Nemtsov was killed in Moscow on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, just several metres from the walls of the Kremlin. Police has not found the killers yet.

      Several prominent figures, including economists Sergey Aleksashenko and Alfred Koch, as well as journalists Aider Muzhdabayev and Oleg Kashin, helped to finish the report. It includes all the gathered content, handwritten notes, documents - everything that Nemtsov's colleagues managed to collect.

      The report says about 70 Russian soldiers who admittedly died in eastern Ukraine in January and February 2015, in the battle for Debaltseve (which the rebels ultimately captured). These soldiers, the report claims, were discharged from the Army while technically on leave. The report also reveals some rough estimates of the cost of the Ukrainian conflict to Russia’s national budget.
