    Yet despite all this ,this is still the sort of guy some American posters here want us to admire and appease
    My thanks for this, my list of his victims only went back as far as 2003 but we have some posters wishing to appease Russia and Putin in this thread here.

    This list only goes up to 2009 but I think it makes its point. These are just the high profile cases though. I suspect there are many many more we will never get to hear about who have been 'disappeared' just like in the good ole days

    Strange how Putin opponents/critics wind up with polonium poisoning (Litvenenko) or a bullet (Poklonskaya/Nemtsov). Ukrainian POW Lieutenant Nadiya Savchenko is near death in a Moscow prison.

    Seems Pussy Riot got off easy.

    Yeah, being bull-whipped by cossacks at the recent Olympics or widely attacked on the internet are minor compared to being shot dead or poisoned with Polonium.

    Either way, it's a dangerous business to oppose Mr Putin.

    LOL

    I guess we'll have to wait, since he has announced he will be personally overseeing the investigation. That would be like the leader of the foxes heading up an investigation into an incident involving a hen house.

    Shot four times in the back. A women he was with was not harmed. A targeted murder.

    Boris Nemtsov was highly critical of Putin's illegal annexation of Crimea and his war in eastern Ukraine.

    The Russian government is already advancing possible motive's for the murder ... killed by fellow opposition members, an attempt to destabilize the state, Islamist extremists. Everything other than the fact that Nemtsov was best known as a highly vocal critic of Putin and his regime.

    Welcome back DDD. In case it escaped you, anything can be claimed on such forums, hmm? Have you evidence that Putin is responsible for this killing, or just more biased anti Russian rhetoric based on all things Russian=bad! and all things Western=good?

    While we're speculating, eh, any number of motives could have been at play here. And certainly somebody wishing to implicate the Kremlin would find value in shooting him adjacent to it! However, the Kremlin, had it so desired, could have disappeared Boris without a trace, and leaving no such easy criticism. You buy this because it fits your Russian hatred nicely.

    I wonder if there are still people here in the US who still admire Putin because they think he's such a strong, decisive leader?
