MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. Head of the Russian Security Service Alexander Bortnikov has announced that there are suspects in the investigation into the murder of prominent Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov.

"There are always some," he said in reply to reporters' questions.

Nemtsov, a co-leader of the RPR-Parnas party, was shot and killed on a bridge in central Moscow at a blank-point range several hundred meters away from the Kremlin minutes before the midnight of Friday, February 27.

The investigators are pursuing several lines of inquiry, including a contract killing. On March 3, Nemtsov was buried at Moscow’s Troyekurovo cemetery.

Car tied to Nemtsov killing belongs to enterprise serving government bodies

The car sought in connection with the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov belongs to a federal state unitary enterprise (FSUE) providing services to the Finance Ministry, Goznak, the Russian state body that prints banknotes, and other agencies, the Finance Ministry said earlier on Wednesday.

"The Ford car we are talking about does not belong to the Finance Ministry," the ministry’s press service told TASS. "This is a vehicle of an in-house security service, an independent FSUE providing services to the Finance Ministry, Goznak and other bodies."

"At the moment the FSUE car was crossing the bridge, a patrol vehicle and police officers were already there," the ministry noted.

A number of media outlets reported that the police were looking for the car, which fled the scene and which allegedly belonged to the Russian Finance Ministry.
