Nemtsov daughter: Putin to blame for my father's death

The daughter of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov has said Vladimir Putin is “politically” responsible for her father’s death.

In an interview in Italy, Zhanna Nemtsova said her father was “a critic of Putin, he fought with Putin, with nobody else”, and said she blamed the Russian president for his death.

“After his death the opposition is beheaded and everybody is frightened,” she said.

The killing of 55-year-old Mr Nemtsov, who was shot near the Kremlin in late February, has infuriated the opposition, which sees Mr Putin as responsible for his death.

Five people have been detained and two charged for the killing, although Mr Nemtsov’s colleagues worry that whoever ordered his murder may not be found.
