Leading Putin critic gunned down outside Kremlin: Boris Nemtsov, a leading opponent and former deputy prime minister was gunned down just a few hours after a radio interview in which he denounced Vladimir Putin's "mad, aggressive" policies, and the day before he was to help lead a rally protesting Russia's actions in the Ukraine crisis and the economic crisis at home. The murder bore all the hallmarks of a contract killing.
Opposition leader and former Russian first deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov has died after being shot in central Moscow late Friday night. He was 55. According to Russia’s Investigative Committee, Nemtsov was walking along the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge near the Kremlin a little after 11 p.m. when a white car pulled alongside him and fired a number of shots at point-blank range, hitting him in the back. A 23-year-old woman from Kiev who was accompanying Nemtsov was unharmed.
Boris Nemtsov: There was a time when Nemtsov’s own sights were set on the country’s top seat of power. Amid the chaos of the 1990s, President Boris Yeltsin had marked out Nemtsov, then a young, reform-minded deputy prime minister who had made fast friends with the country’s richest and most powerful oligarchs. Yeltsin had considered handing him the reins of power but ultimately ceded the presidency to a little known ex-KGB officer: Putin.
