NEW YORK, March 13. /TASS/. Russia’s law enforcement agencies will continue to investigate the murder of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the AP on Thursday.
"We are going to continue an investigation that is being conducted by the organs and special services and law enforcement that are envisaged by Russian legislation," Peskov said.
European Parliament has on Thursday adopted a resolution demanding an international probe into Nemtsov’s killing. Russia will carry out its own investigation, the spokesman said.
"We do hope that in coming days all the formalities in terms of legislation will be completed and prosecutors will sound out their versions of the murder, those who are standing behind and so on and so forth," Peskov noted.
On March 8, Moscow’s Basmanny Court sanctioned the arrest of five suspects in Nemtsov's murder. Anzor Gubashev, Shadid Gubashev, Zaur Dadayev, Khamzat Bakhaev and Tamerlan Eskerkhanov will be held in custody at least until April 28.
In an interview with the AP, Peskov once again rebuffed rumors about the state of President Vladimir Putin’s health, saying that Putin’s health is "really perfect."
"There is absolutely no reason for any doubts about the state of his health," Peskov told the AP. "His health is really perfect, everything is OK with him, and he’s working in accordance with his traditionally overloaded working schedule," he added.
Speculations about Putin’s health started after a meeting between the leaders of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in Astana, scheduled for this week, was postponed. Peskov said the meeting will take place at the end of next week.
"Sometimes he’s more public, sometimes he’s not," Peskov said. "But it doesn’t mean that he’s not continuing his tradition of being a workaholic. So it’s continuing traditionally, and his working schedule is quite heavy," the spokesman noted.
"Actually it’s very hard to explain this wave of interest toward the state of his health," he said, adding: "We do appreciate the care, the global care.".
