British Foreign Ministry urges Russia to find paymasters of Boris Nemtsov's murder
British Foreign Ministry urged Russia to continue the investigation and find customers and executors of the murder of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov.
The corresponding appeal is in the department's statement.
"The investigation must continue in order to ensure that all responsible, including those who ordered the assassination, are brought to justice," the message says.
“The Foreign and Commonwealth Office supports Boris Nemtsov’s family in their call for a fuller investigation into who ordered his murder,” says the message. It also notes that the British government believes that the responsibility for his murder goes further than those already convicted.
Earlier, June 29, all five defendants in the case of Nemtsov's murder, including Zaur Dadaev, Shadid Gubashev, Anzor Gubashev, Temirlan Eskerkhanov, and Khamzat Bakhaev, were found guilty by the panel of jurors in the Moscow District Military Court; according to the verdict of the jury, they do not deserve leniency.
Boris Nemtsov was killed on February 27, 2015 on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge in the center of Moscow.
The Kuybyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg is to consider the third case against Barsukov (Kumarin), as part of which he is charged with criminal community creation. Previously, the 'night governor of St. Petersburg' had been held in the Moscow's Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center. It is also reported that Barsukov is to be questioned in the case of Galina Starovoytova's murder.
