The destabilisation of Russia continues with the assassination of an opposition leader Boris Nemtso on the eve of an opposition rally in Moscow.
An unidentified attacker in a car shot Mr Nemtsov four times in the back as he crossed a bridge in view of the Kremlin, police say.
He died hours after appealing for support for a march on Sunday in Moscow against the war in Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the murder, the Kremlin says.
Investigators said the murder could have been “a provocation aimed at destabilising the country”.
The investigative committee said in a statement that several motives for the killing were being considered including “Islamic extremism”.
US President Barack Obama condemned the “brutal murder” and called on the Russian government to conduct a “prompt, impartial and transparent investigation”.
Are we to believe that Putin did it? I have little doubt this is another attempt to destabilise Russia, driven by US-Neo-conservatives and their allies.
RTE report tens of thousands on the streets to mourn the opposition leader, no mention of the fact that the rally had been arranged long before last night’s shooting.
