Political Murder (Iconic) (Boris Nemtsov)

boris nemtsov

On the murder of Boris Nemtsov, an important leader of the opposition to Czar Vladimir Putin. What drew my attention to this particular photograph is its picture of autocratic power, Police investigators gather around the exposed body of the corpse, all under the illuminated onion domes of St Basil. Nemtsov was shot in the back.

    I think its sad that he was murdered, he because yes he was a important leader of opposition when it came to Putin. I hope that his death does not install fear but inspires the people under Putin to speak and fight for what they believe.
