I know there are more  hellish countries on earth than Russia , with brutal leaders,  but really... And to think , just a year ago, Putin 's Russia was the focus of world attention, if not admiration, at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. It's so depressing. Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.

Two men, of Chechen origin, have been charged:

As of now, their motives remain a mystery.  It is assumed that they were hired guns.  So, who did the hiring?

Nemtsov was instrumental in assuring the last Tsar and his family and retainers were buried.

His murder was a great loss for Russia.

11 jan 2017 in the Wall Street Journal there is a editorial by David Slatter "Russian Questions for Rex Tillerson" that has an update on the Nemtsov murder.
