Boris Nemstov, the fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, is dead. Shot four times in the back in the middle of Russia’s capital city. At the time, security cameras in the area were all pointed away from the scene and at the Kremlin.
Dmitry Kiselev, Russia’s closest equivalent to a Fox News anchorman, has accused the West of murdering Boris Nemstov. Specifically he accused the CIA. Kiselev says “who benefits?” His answer is the West.
There are similarities to the murder of former FSB agent Litvenenko nine years ago. An enemy of the Kremlin was murdered, and the Kremlin and Kremlin-aligned news sources blamed the West. The theory is that the enemies of Russia killed the enemies of Russia in order to weaken Russia.
Putin’s popularity stands at 86%.
