Possible Motives behind Nemtsov Murder (Boris Volodarsky, Austria, 03/01/15 4:07 am)

I fully agree with Cameron Sawyer (28 February) that the Nemtsov murder is the dirty work of the Kremlin regime. There is no doubt about it and the official statements of the Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov (whom I know personally) and the State Procurator's officer's most stupid and incredible versions demonstrate that there is the state behind this crime. I saw a video today showing the whole operation--a typical professional murder fully supported by many elements and exactly fitting the picture that I described in my earlier book The KGB's Poison Factory (UK: 2009, USA: 2010).

The motives are very clear. Boris was a very popular public figure seen by President Yeltsin as a possible successor. He was also one of the leaders of the Russian opposition with pro-Western views and strong American affiliation. Besides, he was the author of several important anti-Putin brochures like, for example, "Putin: Corruption" and many, many others including one on the Olympic games in Sochi. A week ago he met the former Georgian President Saakashvili (an official fiend of the Russian state) in Kiev, they both had several meetings with the Ukrainian President Poroshenko, another Russian fiend, and on 1 March Boris was to lead an important public event in Moscow. On the same day (1 March, which is today) the Russian television prepared to bring out a documentary showing Nemtsov and other opposition leaders like Kasiyanov and Navalny as virtually agents of the West who receive money from Washington and aim to undermine the current regime in Russia by illegal means. Boris Nemtsov was as much hated by the Putin regime as Politkovskaya, Litvinenko and Berezovsky.

I believe he was introduced to his lady companion (the name is known) in Kiev. She, of course, was very much the type he liked, and she easily led him to the trap in Moscow a week later. A standard combination. An the place where Boris was killed was also chosen not at random, as far as I know. There were other much more suitable and discreet places for this professional murder, but specifically this place was chosen, which also shows this was not by chance. There is also no doubt, in spite of what President Obama, Chancellor Merkel, and Mr Hollande are asking, that the perpetrators will never be found. Ramzan Kadyrov of Chechnya has already announced that this murder is the work of the Western intelligence services who aim to undermine Russia. That is the official line.

JE comments: Many thanks to Boris Volodarsky for this excellent analysis.  Wouldn't it behoove Putin to scrounge up some "perpetrators," in a spirit of "justice is served"?  This is the way it was done in the old days.
