U.S. Senator Marco Rubio introduced a bill to rename the street in front of the Russian Embassy in Washington in honor of the Russian politician Boris Nemtsov. This is stated in the statement on the website of the Senator.
“Two years ago, Boris Nemtsov was killed on a bridge in Moscow in the field of view of the Kremlin, and no one was brought to justice”, — reads the statement of the Senator.
Rubio has offered to name a street in the capital of the USA “Boris Nemtsov Plaza” in honor of the murdered politician “and all Russians fighting for their democratic rights”. In his opinion, street Nemtsov will remind that “the voices of dissidents continue to sound and the defenders of freedom will not be silenced”.
The Senator also promised that he “will continue to work to ensure that those responsible for the murder [of Boris Nemtsov], was brought to justice”.
Boris Nemtsov was gunned down on Great Moskvoretsky bridge in Moscow in the evening of 27 February 2015. Now detained on charges of involvement in the assassination attempt are five natives of Chechnya: Zaur Dadayev, brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubareva, Temirlan Eskerkhanov and Khamzat. Another alleged perpetrator, Beslan Shavanov, were blown up by a grenade while trying to arrest.
One of the instigators of the murder, according to investigators, is a former officer of the battalion “North” interior Ministry troops of Ruslan muhudinov. The consequence considers that he and “other unidentified persons” at the end of September 2014 invited artists 15 million roubles for murder of the politician. Currently muhudinov is wanted.
