Kremlin promises to continue searching for customers of Nemtsov's murder

The search for the customers in high-profile cases, including the murder of Boris Nemtsov, will continue, but it may take a lot of time, said Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian president.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Boris Nemtsov was shot dead on February 27, 2015, in Moscow. The Moscow District Military Court has been considering his murder case since October 3, 2016, with the participation of the jury.

Investigators believe Ruslan Mukhudinov to be the customer.

"Such cases are among most complicated ones, since it is necessary to find and bring to justice not only the performers, but also the customers," Mr Peskov said today.

According to his story, the inquiry into them may last for several years, the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" reports.

In the opinion of the advocates of the suffered party, investigators are trying to remove the blow from the encirclement of the head of Chechnya. According to Vadim Prokhorov, a family advocate, the customer of the murder had a political motive.
