YAROSLAVL, March 1. /TASS/. The police are searching the office of politician Boris Nemtsov, who was shot dead in Moscow overnight to Saturday, at the Yeroslavl Region Duma, a police spokesman told TASS on Sunday.
Nemtsov’s office was sealed up on February 28 in the presence of employees of the administration of the Yaroslavl Region Duma.
