This is ridiculous. I don't know who is responsible but the Putin Lovers should really give their heads a shake when they spout off about how "cool" Vlad is compared to our politicians in the West.

Putin has to go. He and those who support this kind of "politics" disgust me.

Boris Nemtsov (Борис Ефимович Немцов) was born on Oct. 9, 1959, in Sochi. Education: Gorky State University, radiophysics (1981). Ph.D. physics and mathematics (1985). 1981-1990: Researcher at the Gorky Radiophysics Research Institute 1990: Elected to the Soviet Congress of People's Deputies.

I think the FSB would probably be a little more discreet with their assassinations.

"Shot in the center of Moscow".

That sounds painful.

Oh, wait...

If the Kremlin isn't poisoning the opposition or putting them in jail then they're just plain KILLING them in cold blood on the street.

What a gutless coward Putin is.
.

I wonder if those people who are against this will have enough guts to protest this despicable and blatantly obvious crime.

You mean like a plutonium laced umbrella ?

Not exactly discreet but imaginative. And if you can get away with it then 4 shots in public would certainly discourage others from same activity. Too early to make assumptions but its a very deep rabbit hole

3 OPTIONS

Putin's rating is very high, people love him regardless of what Western Media would have you believe

1 - Some angry civilian group saw him as traitor and killed him,

2 - CIA had him killed in ongoing effort to demonize Putin because he is against western NWO

3 - Putin or one of his people had him killed, BUT AGAIN, there was no need to, Putin's rating in Russian Federation is very high

Wow if this isn't a message don't know what is. He was organizing an anti putin Rally in march 1st. Wonder what's going to happen with that now did he create a martyr?? Prepair yourselves somehow this will be the USA fault. Putin was smart he can give a message namely don't cross Putin or I'll have you killed at the Kremlin. And of course they'll blame someone and it won't have anything to do with politics maybe he was being mugged.

The Germans loved Hitler too but that didn't make him any better. Russian citizens don't have any choice but to love Putin and sing his praises while they're waiting in the bread and soup lines. 4 shots in the middle of the street is one reason why.

This would be my answer as to who.

There are some hard core Putin supporters out there.

I guess if there was any doubt about Putin being as crazy as a heard of "March Hares", there is no doubt now, this is a man with nothing to loose.

Which brings me to another point as to what Putin's intensions are with Ukraine and any other country that used to be part of Russia... this is just beginning.

Almost every week somebody..
Putin owns the media in Russia, mostly, so do we actually see honest ratings? Rallies against Putin happens quite often in Russia.
Here an Old Lady tells what she thinks about him.


you need to turn translation on in video.

Actually, it may surprise you to know that the "Western Media" hasn't been saying that Putin is unpopular.

CNN - Vladimir Putin's approval rating? Now at a whopping 86%

That's from 2 days ago.

Maybe Nemtsov came into possession of some information that necessitated his immediate assassination and there wasn't time to do it more discretely?

It was probably somebody who worked for Putin himself. In the Ukraine thread, I mentioned that this type of thing is becoming more and more common in Russia. Just happened to be right before an opposition rally, not far at all from the Kremlin. Putin is beginning to remind me of Hitler.

Only beginning to?
Putin has been directly emulating the actions up to the start of WW2 for a couple of years now, seizing Russian media, destroying political opposition, distracting with a public enemy/scapegoat, causing economic hardship, which then increases the nationalism, threatening a neighbour to "protect Russian speakers", invading under a pretext...

There's a lot that Putin has been doing that directly echoes what Hitler did.

Aside from that, it's too early to say one way or another who is responsible for this politicians murder, but it should not be lost on anyone that Putin has now claimed that he is going to oversee the investigation - meaning that he will be in control of this. That's not good for credibility and he knows it, meaning (if true) it's actually more likely that he was responsible.

If you have nothing to hide you allow those tasked with investigating to do that job, taking control of the investigation reeks of an attempt to over up.

I saw that to taking over the investigation is the dumbest thing he could do unless he ordered it. Since he is one of the suspects it automatically taints the entire investigation.

Seeing how this thread is evolving 2 becomes more likely.
