GROZNY, February 28. /TASS/. Leader of the Russian North Caucasian republic of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has accused Western secret services of assassination of the RPR-Parnassus party co-chair, Boris Nemtsov.
"Forces interested in fanning tensions could have been just those that agreed to this devious step as the plotters had hoped the whole world would accuse the country’s leadership in Nemtsov’s death and it would arouse a protest wave," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page. "It goes beyond doubt that Nemtsov’s assassination had been plotted by the Western secret services striving to produce by all means an internal conflict in Russia. That is their rule. First, they have a person get closer, lend him wings and then sacrifice in order to blame the political leadership."
He claims there were loads of such examples and "Kiev’s hatred towards Russia" could not but be just shrugged off.
"Hands of Ukraine’s secret services were the ones that could have enforced a verdict delivered [to Nemtsov] in a certain Western capital city," Kadyrov said. "But Boris Nemtsov was not a real challenger to the power in Russia these days."
Nemtsov was killed on Moscow’s Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge overnight to February 28. Shots were made from a car passing by, four bullets hit the lawmaker in the back killing him on the spot.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has already instituted a criminal case on charges of murder and illegal circulation of weapons under Articles 105 and 222 of the Russian Criminal Code.
