Putin critic Boris Nemtsov killed: Mother of witness speaks out

Source: CNN

Moscow (CNN)The Ukrainian girlfriend of slain Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov faces constant psychological pressure from Moscow authorities and fears she will be implicated in his death, her mother told CNN.

Model Anna Duritskaya, 23, was walking with Nemtsov on Friday night when a gunman shot the politician about 100 meters (330 feet) from the Kremlin. "She was crying and she was saying Boris had been killed and he's lying next to me," said her mother, Inna Duritskaya. "She was in such shock she couldn't say anything else."

Duritskaya said her daughter was questioned until 2 a.m. Monday. She said she fears authorities will implicate her daughter in the death because they have threatened to take her attorney away from her.

The model had been staying at the apartment of an aide to Nemtsov under constant police guard.

2. I bet she does know enough about putin's actions to know she could be implicated in Boris

Nemtnov's death.

Violent deaths of Putin opponents

April 2003 - Liberal politician Sergey Yushenkov assassinated near his Moscow home

July 2003 - Investigative journalist Yuri Shchekochikhin died after 16-day mysterious illness

July 2004 - Forbes magazine Russian editor Paul Klebnikov shot from moving car on Moscow street, died later in hospital

October 2006 - Investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya shot dead outside her Moscow apartment

November 2006 - Former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died nearly three weeks after drinking tea laced with polonium in London hotel

March 2013 -Boris Berezovsky, former Kremlin power broker turned Putin critic, found dead in his UK home

(Nemtsov) was gunned down a stone's throw away from the Kremlin, in an area which is always tightly policed, and where security cameras are everywhere you look. He was, it appears, tracked for hours as he travelled around central Moscow.

(Police officers have) trawled through Mr Nemtsov's flat in central Moscow, seizing documents and computer drives.

5. Like the "Clinton body count" it is helpful to look into each one individual

Not to say Putin isn't personally involved in each & all of these

Four people have been convicted during a controversial trial for the murder of Sergei Yushenkov and are currently serving prison sentences. Most prominent among them is Mikhail Kodanev, a former co-chairman of the Liberal Russia party organized by Yushenkov himself. During the trial, Mikhail Kodanev strenuously claimed to be innocent. He later tried to commit suicide and was placed in the FSB's special Lefortovo prison. According to attorney Henry Reznick, Kodanev was convicted solely on the basis of the false testimony of another convicted suspect (Alexander Vinnik) who made a series of contradictory statements, including claims that Yushenkov was killed by the government.[7]

Critics also insisted that the political murders of two chairmen of the Liberal Russia party should have been considered as the same case in the court, which would make it clear that some of the suspects were wrongly accused.[8] Some observers noted that Kodanev was relatively unknown in Russian politics until he was named to Yushenkov's party by Boris Berezovsky, ostensibly to make a mockery of Vladimir Putin (Kodanev was nicknamed "Putin" because he looks very much like the President). Some Russian media claimed that it was Boris Berezovsky who organized the murder of Sergei Yushenkov through his agent Mikhail Kodanev.

Former FSB officer Aleksander Litvinenko suggested that Sergei Yushenkov could be killed because he knew that FSB organized the Moscow theatre hostage crisis,[9] consistent with a previous report by journalist Anna Politkovskaya.[10]


Regarding, the next one it is really hard to trust any of what is said & the most incriminating claims comes from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chechenpress ??

This one seems to point more to organized crime, do they need an order from Putin to do stamp out something in how it relates to itself?

Klebnikov joined the Forbes in 1989 and gained a reputation for investigating murky post-Soviet business dealings and corruption.[3] In 1996, he wrote a cover story for Forbes titled "Godfather of the Kremlin?", comparing Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky to the Sicilian mafia. The article was published without a byline, but was widely known to be Klebnikov's work. Klebnikov soon received death threats, and took a break from reporting in Russia to live with his family in Paris.[2]


OK regarding an assertion which comes from a claim of a "spy" interviewed on the BBC & they are very controversial. People should be BBC everytime their are numerous studies & their behavior regarding the "Balean report" prove BBC is biased

On 11/12/12, in Reporting Scotland, the programme opens with ‘Row over independence could lead to higher electricity bills’ then runs through a series of negative sound bites interspersed with SNP protest – ‘questions mount over independence’, ‘UK government claims cost could rise’, ‘Could Scots customers have to pay more?’, ‘Labour spokesman – danger’ before allowing the evidence of Scottish over-production, renewables and a captive market in England to cast serious doubt on the motivation for the initial headline ‘scare’.

Health-related matters were the other dominant theme. For example, on 27/9/12 the case of a Scottish patient seeking free care only available in England was highlighted and linked to the relative lack of GP control in Scotland. This began a mini-series of reports that day on alleged failings in the Scottish NHS by Reporting Scotland reporters and by Labour spokespersons. No balancing cases were reported of a flow in the other direction although such did appear in the popular press (‘Now English asthma patients are denied life-changing drug offered to Scots’, Daily Mail, 9/11/12). The use of single cases to suggest wider concerns is of course problematic.

Less typical but of interest in this evaluation of editorial decision making was:

- On 24/6/13 in STV at 6, the presenter, referring to a report from the ‘Scottish Institute’ offers unchallenged the notion that the Scottish armed forces ‘might have trouble recruiting due to lack of adventure’! The possibility of the reverse trend is not considered.


The above is a good one but I don't think any other news organization has so bias studies done on them or known reports where the BBC was full of shit.

Better evidence which the BBC is obviously biased in a list of "political opponents" when investigation reporting that mentions the mob could inspire the mob to do it themselves. I really don't think if he did all of them even if he did at-least 1.

6. Right.. we're talking putin and his protectors bring up "Clinton".. I'm not buying the crap you're

pushing. So you can go right ahead with your never ending propaganda to try and distract from that *******, hypocritical, homophobic, internet and journalist censoring, dictator but it's not work-ing.

7. Clinton OMG, what crap are you selling

Clinton Body Count? why was it such a ridiculous list?

OK first one I see on the list

Charles Ruff was one of Clinton's attorneys during the impeachment trial and was known to have inside infomration on the White House emails scandal as well. Original reports were that he died in an accident in his home although no details were given. Then the report changed to claim that he was found in his bedroom unconscious, then declared dead on arrival at the hospital. The authorities will provide no details other than the usual (and quite premature) assurances that there was no foul play involved.

OK what does an independent source say?

When Ruff died from a heart attack at 61, he was again a partner at Covington & Burling.

While not nearly as misleading as Charles Ruff, BBC is using basically the same idea to sell the crap & they're known to sell a lot of crap. All I'm doing is pointing out how it is crap and I'm somehow selling it? WTF?

Never ending propaganda? Your post has far more than mine. I'm more interested in the truth than anything else.

4. Not to worry! The Case Files of Supreme Detective Vladimir Putin - SATIRE:

By Zack Parsons - Mar 02, 2015

The Case of Boris Nemtsov

Supreme Detective Putin arrives on horseback at the morgue. Gets down from horse and flips over lid of box holding remains of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov. He takes off his sunglasses and pokes and prods his finger into the Swiss cheese holes in Nemtsov's back.

"This is very weak blood. Homosexual blood. And these bullet? Forensic say only made in Ukraine," declares Putin. "They use very weak bullet. Is fatal because of very weak spine. See this? Is spine p___y. Shot in spine p___y by Ukrop bullets to make martyr. CIA maybe. Okay? No trial. It is very sad the CIA continues murdering opposition to me in plot to make me look bad."

He signs an 8x10 head shot of himself scowling at a tiger, hands it to the coroner, gets on his horse, and rides out.

Oh, it goes downhill from there, but still sorta funny, definitely something awful:


Go to link to see what it says Putin's other investigations found:

The Case of Warehouse Massacre

It was the Chechens and the CIA at work again...

The Case of Break In at Opposition Headquarters

Putin determines it is the fault of the USA, Britain, gays, due to 'pedophile sex pictures and a USA flag wallpaper,' on a computer, and the CIA. And all of the opposition party went for the policeman guns.

The Case of Oligarch Killed in Office

Hacked to death with a machete, shot by two different guns, but ruled a suicide because he was a 'secret homosexual and pedophile.' Also, CIA!

Last but not least:

The Case of Sexy Model Dancers Found Dead in Hotel

Women died from forcing Putin to have sex with them until they died. Normal because of Putin's huge, very heterosexual penis. Also, CIA sent these Nazi girls to kill him.

Readers will decide which of these stories, if any, are true. Are these deaths just a coincidence, and how many would say that, at the same time they claim no coincidence at WTC7, Sandy Hook, Aurora, etc.?

The mind simply boggles.

Another case solved, Putin returns to his office to stare at the flag of Russia until he is needed again.

9. Yeah, right.. "Supreme detective vlad putin".. he'll definitely get right on that to blame anyone

but himself.

An article you might be interested in, fresh..

Germany finally seeing Vladimir Putin for who he really is

Blinken’s effusiveness went beyond diplomatic protocol. Ready or not, Merkel has become the unlikely leader of the proUkrainian cause. The war in Ukraine followed a long chain of unintended consequences, of which Germany’s new role may be the most surprising. Before Russia’s intervention in Ukraine a year ago, Obama was happy not to think about Europe at all. Russian President Vladimir Putin counted on commercial ties and World War II guilt to keep Germany neutralized. And Merkel placed an emphasis on “dialogue” with Russia and stability in Europe.

Russia’s unilateral redrawing of Ukraine’s borders has refocused minds in Germany. Putin’s annexation of Crimea, his lies that Russian troops were not involved, and his covert war in eastern Ukraine have eroded trust in the Kremlin. Germany’s political elite — unlike the isolationist, latently anti-American population at large —has no illusions that Putin’s actions are posing the greatest danger to European security since the Cold War.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who hails from the traditionally Russophile Social Democrats, is the starkest example of this evolution. Steinmeier, together with his French and Polish counterparts, tried to negotiate a settlement between Viktor Yanukovych, then Ukraine’s president, and anti-government protesters in February 2014. Later, Steinmeier spearheaded Merkel’s efforts to find a diplomatic solution to the spiraling conflict through the revival of the so-called Minsk agreement. In the process, he suffered the same Kremlin lies that Secretary of State John Kerry complained about last month.

Much MOre..
