The Caucasian Trail of Nemtsovs Murder
March 10, 2015 21:18


According to the sources of “Lenta.Ru”, the investigators of the case of the murder of Boris Nemtsov from MIA and FSS picked up the trail of the ethnic criminal group consisting of six people. Two of them were detained, as the FSS Director Aleksandr Bortnikov reported on Saturday, March 7.

According to the investigators, Anzor Gubashev and Zaur Dadaev were the actual perpetrators. One of them shot Nemtsov and the other drove the car where the killer sat immediately after making four shots to the victim. There is information supporting the fact that some of the group members staying outside came up and made sure that Nemtsov was dead. Others played a supporting role. It is still unknown who paid for the services of the criminal group. However, the perpetrators are not a professional gang of killers. In Moscow they acted as typical purse snatchers who were most likely engaged in highway robbery.

This assumption is partially supported by the fact that the murder scene was selected precisely a bridge as such, without regard to the fact that it was situated at a provocatively short distance from the Kremlin. A version that is being developed now says that gang acted independently, pursuing some extremist goals. It was possible to quickly find Gubashev and Dadaev due to lack of their knowledge about the technical capabilities of the security services. According to the investigators, the criminals just did not take into account “some things” distinguishing the work of the FSS and MIA when planning routes of escape after the murder. The location of the four other members of the group, according to the source, is almost detected, so they cannot escape.

The work on identification of the ethnic criminal group, their possible accomplices and customers is actively carried out among influential members of the Caucasian criminal groups. According to a representative of one of the expatriate communities, a group of people that killed Nemtsov belongs to the category of extremists, such as, for example, the gang of the boss nicknamed Zaika that was arrested last year for a number of cases of gross blackmail committed in a style of 1990s.

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.
