MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Anna Duritskaya, the Ukrainian citizen who was accompanying the Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov on a stroll along Moscow streets on Friday night when he was killed and who is the main eyewitness in the criminal case over his assassination, has left for Kiev by plane, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
"Anna Durnitskaya has just taken a flight to Kiev," the spokesman wrote on his page in Twitter.
Boris Nemtsov, 55, and Anna Duritskaya were walking along the Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge in a stone’s throw from the Kremlin close to midnight on Friday when an unknown gunman shot and killed him. Nemtsov died of wounds on the spot.
Duritskaya told Dozhd TV channel on Monday that she does not remember the night of Nemtsov’s killing well. However, "the murderer stood behind" them and he shot Nemtsov in the back. When the politician fell, Duritskaya ran to a snowplow driver for help and called the police. Law enforcers arrived in 10 minutes. Duritskaya said she does not remember what happened before the police came.
She also said she rules out jealousy was the motive of the prominent politician's murder.
Duritskaya wanted to return to Ukraine to be with her mother "who is very sick and severely stressed".
