Protests are rising in Russia after the assassionation last saturday of Boris Nemtsov, one of the oppositions leader against the President Vladimir Putin.

In Moscow more then 50 people have been arrested after the demonstration of solidariety and condolency to Boris Nemtsov. At least 50.000 people have been partecipating to the silent demonstration against this assassination and the russian regime.

We published here a photo gallery from Saint Petersburg of the demonstration that took place today in the same time of the main  one in Moscow.

About the murder, From Wikipedia:

Just before midnight (at 23:40 GMT+3) on 27 February 2015, Nemtsov was shot several times in the back as he was crossing the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge in Moscow, close to the Kremlin walls and Red Square (55.7495°N 37.62421°E). He died at the scene.

The murder happened less than two days before Nemtsov was due to take part in a peace rally against alleged Russian involvement in the war in Ukraine and the financial crisis in Russia.

The BBC reported: “In his last tweet, Mr Nemtsov sent out an appeal for Russia’s divided opposition to unite at an anti-war march he was planning for Sunday”, quoting him as saying, “If you support stopping Russia’s war with Ukraine, if you support stopping Putin’s aggression, come to the Spring March in Maryino on 1 March.”

Russian journalist Kseniya Sobchak said that Nemtsov was preparing a report proving the presence of Russian military in eastern Ukraine.

The night following the murder of Nemtsov, his papers, writings and computer hard drives were confiscated in a search performed by police in his flat on Malaya Ordynka street.

Less than three weeks before his murder, on 10 February, Nemtsov wrote, “I’m afraid Putin will kill me”, which appeared on Russia’s Sobesednik news website.
