MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. About 21,000 people took part in a march of mourning in memory of Boris Nemtsov in central Moscow on Sunday, the press service of the Moscow police department said.
"The march is practically over. Participants are leaving the venue. Police say about 21,000 people took part in the march," the press service said.
Nemtsov, 55, was shot dead while walking along the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge overnight to Saturday with several shots from a handgun from a car passing by him.
He was a co-chair of the RPR-Parnas liberal democratic political party and a deputy of a regional legislature, the Yaroslavl City Duma. Nemtsov held a number of Russian government positions in the 1990s.
The Russian Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case on charges of a murder and illegal possession of arms. The investigators have several theories of the murder, while not ruling out that this was a contract killing. On Sunday, the Investigative Committee asked those who witnessed the murder to contact the investigators.
Nemtsov will be buried at Moscow’s Troyekurovskoye Cemetery on March 3.
