BERLIN, February 28. /TASS/. Germany’s President Joachim Gauck has been shocked over the assassination of a Russian opposition leader, Boris Nemtsov, the head of state said in a statement published on Saturday.
Gauck expressed "his deep respect for the personality of the Russian former deputy prime minister who was active in defending freedom, democracy and peace."
"His death is an irrevocable loss for the public discussion in Russia," he said adding that "right now his voice will be missed."
Germany’s president was hopeful Russia would conduct an overwhelming investigation into the opposition leader’s death.
Nemtsov was killed on Moscow’s Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge overnight to February 28. Shots were made from a car passing by, four bullets hit the lawmaker in the back killing him on the spot.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has already instituted a criminal case on charges of murder and illegal trafficking in weapons, Articles 105 and 222 of the Russian Criminal Code.
A senior aide to the chief of Investigative Committee’s Moscow department, Yulia Ivanova, has said that the investigators do not rule out the murder was a contract one.
