Russia: Jury convicts five in murder of Kremlin foe Nemtsov

Source: MSN News

“A Russian jury on Thursday found five men guilty of organizing and carrying out the contract killing of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, after a trial his allies say failed to unmask the masterminds. Former deputy prime minister Nemtsov, a fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin, was gunned down just steps from the Kremlin as he walked home with his girlfriend late in the evening of February 27, 2015. … While the ruling provides some answers over the murder, Nemtsov’s supporters insist that despite the trial those who ordered the charismatic politician’s death have not been uncovered.” [hat tip — David Klaus] (06/29/17)
