Volgograd activists demand to find the customer of Nemtsov's murder
On the anniversary of Boris Nemtsov's murder, in Volgograd, seven activists held solo pickets, criticizing the superficial investigation of the crime.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the march in memory of Boris Nemtsov was held in Moscow under enhanced security measures. The staff of the Amnesty International (AI) joined the march demanding to release Oyub Titiev, a Chechen human rights defender.
The Russian politician, Boris Nemtsov, was killed in central of Moscow on February 27, 2015. Five natives of Chechnya and Ingushetia were convicted for committing the murder.
On February 24, seven Volgograd activists held the solo pickets in Heroes Alley.
"Today marks 4 years since Nemtsov's killing. I believe that the customer of the murder is in the highest echelons of power. It's possible that the performers were [indeed] those convicted, but we demand to find the customer for the Nemtsov's murder," Galina Tikhenko, one of the picketers, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
The investigation into the murder of Boris Nemtsov was conducted superficially, while the country's political leadership revealed no sincere interest in finding the customers for the crime, says Toma Grodnikova, an activist.
