Bill Browder’s Statement on the Murder of Boris Nemtsov

February 28, 2015

Last night Russia entered a new and dark phase in its slide toward totalitarian dictatorship with the murder of Boris Nemtsov. Previously, the Putin regime relied primarily on imprisonment and exile to silence opposition politicians.  Now, they have started murdering them. I’m sure this won’t be the last.

Boris Nemtsov was one of the few people in Russia who wasn’t afraid to stand up to the corruption, illegitimacy and impunity of the Putin regime and for that he paid with his life. I will always remember how Boris went around the world calling for justice for the murder of Sergei Magnitsky and demanding Western sanctions against his killers. It is now our duty to do the same for Boris.

I have no confidence in any Russian investigation into his death because the Putin regime proved its incapacity to do this with the cover up of the Magnitsky murder.

I can only hope that Boris Nemtsov’s legacy will ultimately bring about the democratic change in Russia he worked his whole life to achieve.

May Boris rest in peace.
