Medics carry the body of Boris Nemtsov, who was shot dead, in central MoscowBy Alexander Winning and Timothy Heritage MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, an outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin and Russia's involvement in the war in Ukraine, was shot dead steps from the Kremlin in central Moscow late on Friday. Nemtsov, 55, was shot four times in the back by assailants in a white car as he walked across a bridge over the Moskva River with a Ukrainian woman who was unhurt. Nemtsov was by far the most prominent opposition figure killed in Russia under Putin's 15-year-rule and the Kremlin swiftly sought to deflect any blame for the murder.
