Oppositionist Boris Nemtsov, who was killed at the end of February in Moscow, did not have time to finish a report on Russian troops in Donbass; his supporters promise to finish it.
The Russian opposition intends to publish details of the report on the participation of Russian troops in the war against Ukraine, which Boris Nemtsov, shortly before his death, was preparing for publication. According to the Russian opposition leader Ilya Yashin, the document contains evidence of Russia’s military presence in the Donbas, writes The Times newspaper.
According to him, the document will contain evidence from the parents of Russian soldiers killed in eastern Ukraine. Yashin also noted that the only complete version of the report was stored on the computer in Nemtsov’s apartment, which was seized by investigators during their search after the killing. However, he noted that all the evidence collected is safeguarded, and the associates of the murdered politician will try to restore them to a document.
Recall that the preparation by Nemtsov of the report on Ukraine became known on the night of the politician’s death. The very next day, Ukrainian President Poroshenko said that the deceased Russian oppositionist was supposed to disclose data on Russian troops in Ukraine.
“A few weeks ago I talked to him, about how to build relations between Ukraine and Russia. Thus, we wanted to see them. Boris declared that he had to publicize strong evidence of the participation of Russian armed forces in Ukraine. Someone was very afraid of this. Boris was not afraid, but his executioners were afraid. They killed him,” said the President of Ukraine.
A Russian opposition politician and public figure, Boris Nemtsov was killed near the Kremlin late on February 27 with four gunshots in the back.
