MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The Kremlin has given no instructions on clearing away the flowers left on Moscow’s Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge where Russian politician Boris Nemtsov was killed last month, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"I can assure that, of course, the presidential administration is not in charge of utility issues in Moscow," Peskov said. "If the district authorities of Moscow have taken some cleanup measures, I would not politicize this issue," he said.
Earlier media reports said the flowers had been allegedly taken away from the improvised memorial upon the order from the Kremlin.
In comments to the reports, Peskov said: "I do not know how the bloggers and not indifferent citizens have found out about any decisions of the presidential administration."
Russian politician Boris Nemtsov, a co-chairman of RPR-Parnas (the Republican Party of Russia - People's Freedom Party), and a deputy of the regional Duma of Russia’s Yaroslavl region, was shot dead in downtown Moscow late on February 27.
A total of five people have been detained as part of the investigation launched into the criminal case. There are candles and photos at the murder scene.
