On Sunday, March 1, 2015, the march in memory of the leading Russian anti-Putin opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was holden in Moscow.
Boris Nemtsov, the famous pro-West former deputy prime minister, was gunned down near the Kremlin late on Friday night on February 27, 2015.
Boris Nemtsov stated that Crimea must be given back to Ukraine and openly underlined in his interviews that the Russian forces must be pulled out Ukraine and the Kremlin aggression must be stopped.
There is a lot of information that Boris Nemtsov was going to prove the involvement of Russian Forces in the conflict in Eastern Ukraine and the war crimes of the Russian army in the report entitled “Putin and the War”.
Ukrainian President Poroshenko said that Boris Nemtsov sacrificed his life for the sake of freedom and democracy:
“A few weeks ago I talked to him on how to build relations between Ukraine and Russia in the way we would like them to be. Boris declared that he is going to reveal irrefutable evidence of Russia’s military presence in Ukraine. Someone was very afraid of this. Boris wasn’t afraid, and the executioners were afraid. They killed him,” and added: “”On March 1, he was supposed to lead a many thousand meeting to demonstrate that there is another Russia which loves Ukraine, respects human rights, and for which freedom is not an empty phrase. And for the sake of freedom and democracy, he was ready to sacrifice his life.”
