MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. Reaction of certain politicians in the West to the assassination of Russian oppositionist Boris Nemtsov cannot be called otherwise than perverted, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s envoy for human rights, Konstantin Dolgov said in an interview published by Kommersant daily on Tuesday.

"Russian President gave a very precise assessment this week," he said. "The authorities are set to assure a professional level of investigation and eventual criminal responsibility for all the culprits. That’s a normal internal process."

"Still the West is trying to turn the situation into a yet another primitive tool for putting pressure on Russia," Dolgov said.

He also recalled Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s words on the inadmissibility of turning the Nemtsov tragedy into an object for politicizing.

Nemtsov, 55 at the time of assassination, was a close associate of former President Boris Yeltsin in the 1990’s. He has been broadly viewed as one the central figures in the liberal economic reforms of the time.

He was shot and killed in downtown Moscow minutes before midnight on February 27.

Investigators are probing into several versions of the causes of the assassination. They say its contract character is not ruled out.

Moscow City’s Basmanny district court has put five suspects in the case to custody. One of them has admitted his complicity in the crime.
