Zaur Dadaev: confession to murder of Nemtsov was recorded several times – I could not remember investigator’s words
The defendant of the ‘Nemtsov case’ once again stressed that his testimony had been dictated to him.
Soldier of the Chechen MIA battalion Sever (North) Zaur Dadaev, who is accused of direct execution of the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, told the court how his confession was recorded.
According to Dadaev, the record made on March 8, 2015 (a week after the murder), had to be remade "three or four times." Problems arose due to the fact that Dadaev could not remember the words of the investigator Igor Krasnov, who was conducting the interrogation.
Dadaev once again stressed that the testimonies he gave were dictated to him by Krasnov. Earlier, the accused repeatedly stated that he renounced the testimonies he had given right after his arrest.
The recording of Dadaev's interrogation was published by Kommersant on April 18 – on the eve of its examination as evidence at the trial at Moscow District Military Court. On the video, Dadaev explains that he decided to kill Nemtsov because of the politician’s statements in support of the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo which published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
At the trial, Dadaev said that he did not know Nemtsov at all; moreover, he confused him with another politician, Boris Berezovsky. Dadaev said that on the day of the murder he was at home all the time, because he was ill.
Novaya Gazeta also published a record of interrogation of another defendant in the case of the murder – Anzor Gubashev. On the video, he discloses the way Nemtsov's murder was planned.
The empire of Telman Ismailov, once one of the most influential and rich Russian oligarchs, collapses like a house of cards.

The assault of henchmen sent by the main Russian thief-in-law against restaurant keeper Zhanna Kim could end up in a different way – but her friend Kenes Rakishev has interfered and helped the caterer. However, now he also needs help – and apparently, much more powerful one.
