Novaya Gazeta Named a Possible Organizer Of the Murder Of Nemtsov
March 10, 2015 17:03


“Novaya Gazeta” has named a possible organizer of the murder of Nemtsov.

“Novaya Gazeta” writes that in the middle of last week the police reported about a “Major Ruslan” to the President.

“Some names of perpetrators and the surname of the organizer of the murder were called, and that was not Dadaev” - the newspaper notes.

“Novaya Gazeta” writes that the name of Ruslan “is known to tens, if not hundreds, of members of the MIA, FSS and IC”. It is also known to the authors of the publication, but they did not call it, “remembering the presumption of innocence”. According to the newspaper, Ruslan also served in the battalion “Sever” and “has been repeatedly awarded.” It is also reported that Ruslan has recently moved to Moscow, “where two of his uncles work”.

The newspaper also writes that the report sent to Putin said about the “execution list” that allegedly included, in addition to Boris Nemtsov, the chief editor of “Echo of Moscow” Aleksei Venediktov”, the former CEO of “YUKOS” Mikhail Khodorkovsky and “probably, Ksenia Sobchak”. 

The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov told that the existence of an “execution list” of politicians and journalists allegedly reported to Vladimir Putin was an absurd, according to “Echo of Moscow”. “I do not know the details of all reports of law enforcement and security services. And it is impossible to disclose them” - Peskov said.

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.
