Moscow Nemtsov march: “The bullets are in each of us”

"When Russian opposition leader and former deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov was shot to death Friday in Moscow, the country lost many things. It lost a charismatic and forceful political organizer. It lost a prominent critic of Putin and of his war in Ukraine.

In a smaller and more immediate way, Russia also lost a leader for a protest rally that Nemtsov had been helping to plan for Sunday in Moscow. Two days after his murder, the rally went ahead, but primarily as a memorial for the man who was to lead it." ~ VOX
