Russian Opposition: Putin Did NOT Assassinate Opposition Leader

U.S. media is quick to blame Putin for the assassination of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov.

But Itina Khakamada –  a top ally of Nemtsov in the opposition – said the killing was “clearly not in Putin’s interest. It’s aimed at rocking the situation.”

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev agrees.

Mikhail Delyagin – a top advisor to Nemtsov for a year and a half – said that Putin didn’t do it, and compared it to the shootdown of Malaysian Flight 17 over Ukraine:

The fact is obvious: this is a Malaysian Boeing, shot down by the Nazis at the walls of the Kremlin.


This is a classic sacrificial lamb, textbook case. Good job Americans, good job Nazis, good job liberals. I don’t know who of them did this. But it was done beautifully.


We have to be prepared that Ukraine will be brought to Russia a lot faster then I thought just recently.

Before I thought that we are safe from Maidan until November, now it is clear that Maidan may be lit up already in the spring. The sacrificial lamb has been slaughtered.

Even the U.S. government’s Voice of America states – in an article entitled  “Could Nemtsov Threaten Putin in Death as in Life?” – that Putin loses much more than he gains by the assassination:

With the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, gunned down on a Moscow street, the fiercest critic of President Vladimir Putin has been removed from the political stage. But it remains to be seen whether, in death as in life, Nemtsov will remain a threat to Putin’s rule. 

Already, city authorities have approved a mass march for up to 50,000 people in central Moscow on Sunday. The march, expected to be far larger than the scheduled protest rally it replaces, will provide a powerful platform for Kremlin critics who suspect a government hand in Nemtsov’s death. 

Even officials in Putin’s government seem to sense the danger that the former first deputy prime minister’s martyrdom might pose, hinting darkly that Friday night’s drive-by shooting may have been an deliberate “provocation” ahead of the planned weekend rally.

  • Here is the video footage for all to view what happened for yourselves.

    Feb 28, 2015 Nemtsov’s Assassination on CCTV

    This surveillance footage features the assassination of Boris Nemtsov. The fatal shots were fired at 23:31:14, when a WSV was overtaking Boris and Anna crossing the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge. The murderer can be seen getting into a car and fleeing the crime scene a few seconds later.

    So far the US/CIA has tried to get rid of Putin by having Ukraine shoot down a civilian jetliner and Ukrainian pilot Vlad Vorinish (probably wrong spelling) has openly taken credit for this in the Kiev papers, so why is there still any doubt on this… then it is Putin is ill and autistic … now he supposedly kills an opposition leader when he has support of over 80% of the Russian population. Does the United States of Chaos think all people are just stupid? However when your controlled press can brainwash 8 out of 10 Americans, then you have license to do what ever you want and have support from the people to do so

    • Woodshedding

      Yes. Is it fully 8 out of 10? How depressing. Course on social media, owned largely by CIA, it’s made to look that way.

      Interestingly, they fed the blue-collar workers the truth about the banksters etc – probably in order to make the white collars decide it’s all B.S. However, my experience is that these blue-collars got mad enough, they’re the ones that might make the difference. Among my white collar friends, it seems they’re too scared to take a stand; either they know the truth and just pull inward, preferring to think about their gardens or whatever, or they don’t know the truth but have swallowed the “don’t talk about religion or politics” brainwashing, so they TOO make no moves of significance.

    • jo6pac

      Yes Putin rating is now 85% and Boris Nemtsov at 1%. This party will now be taken over by young person just time for one of the ngo summer parties. It will fail.

    • Greg Burton

      At this moment, they are rounding up the usual suspects (R).

      • Pravda01

        I now fear the impossible, the assassination of Vladimir Putin itself. Whoever did this was possibly not Russian.

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        Geez, talk about desperation.
        Still, I’d prefer the guy on the right to Bath House Barry.

    • Man with actual brain

      Yea, because beating the gay population in the streets marks Putin’s absolute love of civil rights and freedom. What a fantastic leader.
      Support of 80% of the people. Numbers we’ve got from…Russia.
      You’re a fucking dumbass.

      • R Brodersdorf

        you will be the first one crying when the walls come tumbling down. I see the media of the corporate US has placed you in the 80%

    • Man with actual brain

      85% votes Putin and somehow the Americans are brainwashed…help us all and kill yourself, please 🙂

  • Woodshedding

    People who were dense enough to not see the hebdo affair for the blatant false flag it was will refuse to consider the fact that the exact same playbook is being used here. All that’s missing is the gunman’s ID dropped out of the car. I keep assuming it was the CIA but Mossad might be more likely. At any rate, one or the other or both have left their signature all over it. Unfortunately, most people really are pretty incapable of discriminative observation and thought.

  • Woodshedding

    VOA’s full of it when they say “But it remains to be seen whether, in death as in life, Nemtsov will remain a threat to Putin’s rule.” That’s what they desperately want us to think, the Russians are turning against Putin. Even using the monarchic term “rule” is BS. This is just backdoor propaganda, not worth repeating.

  • Cuchulain

    Perhaps the murderers have another Nemtsov waiting “in the wings” as we speak.

  • hvaiallverden

    The only thing that amazed me, that Putins driver license wherent miraculusly found in the near vincetys of the crime site, or his unerwear or something like that, you know, when you are autistic, dressing isnt your best side, just as the “science is setled” american “think tanks” and geniousess.
    4 children lost their father, but otherwise, I think he blew it on a personal level, and to side with neoCONs and ZioNazis is a dobble egded sword.
    As the saying goes in the UssA, a smart carier move.
    The propaganda is becomed hilarious, infact, despite the gravness and ww3 and all that, I am having a ball.
    Its becoming better and better, depends, of course witch side your on.
    I must confess, its so far out that I simply, I looove it.

    A conspiracys best and wettest dream, when the “normal” is digging their own grave at breathtaking speed and vigour, and is so far out, that even in the comentary feilds, they have realised to impossibility to keep whatever michroscopic credibility there is left alive.
    Harakiri is a defenitions that is sutable for their own “mater pieces”.


    • Eye Spy

      Your first three lines have me in stiches, i am off to read the rest. i am back and YEP it would be funny except that there is an amazing amount of brain dead sheep out there being led to the slaughter of our freedoms bleating the lies they have been indoctrinated into. Some are so brain dead with their phd’s and the like they know they are talking BS but push the nonsense so they can masturbate for one more day.

      • Voice of Reason

        Yea, because beating the gay population in the streets marks Putin’s absolute love of civil rights and freedom. You’re a fucking dumbass.

    • enriqueferro

      A few days ago they blamed Putin of kidnapping the lost Malaysian jet, and landing it in the Stars Park in Kazakhstan… I bet they will sooner rather than later tell us that Putin was the mastermind of Kennedy’s assassination. No kidding! He was a prodigious kid!

      • Caleb Abell

        You forgot that Putin also supplied John Wilkes Booth with the gun he used to kill Lincoln.

        • HLMunchkin

          I’ll never forgive him about that. s/

    • R Brodersdorf

      I see they pay you well…you spout US troll trash as well as any of them.

  • Eye Spy

    Nemtsov murder: Putin warned about exactly this type of “false flag” two years ago

  • enriqueferro

    For one thing, the march wasn’t that big. And the stocking exchange didn’t notice a thing, ruble continued recovering…

  • Now who would assassinate an opposition leader to make the incumbent look bad?

    Same thing in Argentina btw:

    Cristina of Argentina: Target of Israeli “false flag” attack

    Mossad “suicides” special prosecutor to embarrass the President of Argentina

  • Ed Dunsel

    Didn’t the Kremlin state that cameras that could have witnessed this murder were (conveniently) down for maintenance… Sounds to me like the work of Putin and a flimsy excuse to blame outsiders. Our govt (usa) is too inept to do much of anything at this point.

    • East EU

      You scumbag,
      what makes you think your joke of government is in anyway entitled to interfere in any country internal affairs. Because of fuckheads like you the world is such mess today.

      • Ed Dunsel

        Just saying, obama is too inept to interfere in Russian affairs… Putin killed him… Period, end of sentence. Now go run along and play like a good little boy. 😉

        • Some Steven Bobsgley

          I like how you’re not interested in investigating this murder, and want to pronounce it a Sure Thing without referring to any evidence. It really tips your hand, you know.

      • Man with actual brain

        The fact that you sick fucks beat people in the streets for being different.
        Its like when kids fight, the grown ups step in.
        If you guys could figure out how to run a government, we wouldn’t have to.
        But look at you now.
        Look at Soviet before.

        All you guys understand is dictatorship.

        • Jimmy Deprogrammon

          You’re saying Russians beat people in the streets for being different? I bet some of them do.
          But don’t Americans shoot people in the streets for being different too? Or the British? Or the Chinese? Some do it abroad, some do it at home.

          Does your nation know how to run a government? Debt to the eyeballs, covert ops run amok, executive license to kill, extrajudicial detention, a global extralegal search-and-monitor grid, child abuse in high office, fraudulent elections, and let’s not forget the unprosecuted war criminals of executive caliber.

          Does YOUR nation, Sir, know how to run a government?

          All those guys understand is fraud and violence.

          • zid

            I think the truth is BOTH of our governments do good and bad things. The fact is though there IS a VERY anti-LGBTQA atmosphere in Russia. I’m not saying we folks here in the US are any better. Like you pointed out-there are issues with racism here in the US too. I don’t think taking jabs at each other for what our countries do ‘wrong’ is helping anything. All too often we forget all the good things we’ve done together. Look how far we came with nuclear disarmament or how much we helped each others space programs.

            It seems for every step we take forward together we take half a dozen steps backwards. It’s just frustrating and sad and there has to be a better way. I remember reading about Samantha Smiths letter to Russia back in the 80’s. She was so worried about nuclear war that she wrote to GPSU General Secretary Yuri Andropov and asked him if there was going to be one. He ended up replying and inviting her to Russia.

            She had so many people in both countries talking and connecting with each other. Russia AND the US loved her. When she died tragically in a car accident soon after letters flowed in from around the world. Both countries set up a memorial for her and the odds are good she helped foster peace between the US and Russia.

            What happened? Where did we each go wrong and how the hell do we fix it? Most Russians seem to mistrust and hate the US now…and I can’t say I blame them because I personally mistrust my own government more and more every day. I grew up thinking maybe I wouldn’t have to worry about myself and my loved ones dying in atomic fire but I guess that fear is never really going to go away, is it?

            What a world :/

      There are very long lists of mysterious deaths all over the world that people blame on the US and its allies. Unless you have proof, it’s called a conspiracy Theory. Conspiracy theories about countries the US happens to be targeting at the moment are acceptable in the US because people are looking for reasons to increase US violence, and facts don’t really matter. What matters is keeping the endless war going.

      Now, when you move from the realm of conspiracy theory to confirmed fact, which country has killed more people lately: US or Russia? Which country is considered a bigger threat to peace by the world?

      By the way, it would not be surprising at all if many of the unconfirmed theories about government assassinations were correct. Many very likely are. Assassinations can be done very secretively. I just went over some of the techniques suggested by the US for carrying out secret assassinations, here:

    • Dr_NOS

      Repeat after me: USA USA USA, etc

  • VChristine

    Huh. And I thought the fiercest critic of Putin was The Daily Mail! Someone needs to.. Oh never mind.

    LOL. With an 85% approval rating, Putin does not need to assassinate anybody, especially a nobody, to secure his position in his nation. The only one benefiting from the assassination of the ‘Putin Critic’ – as he was posited yesterday on the front page of the NY Times, The WSJ, The Wash Post and the Wash Times… is the west. That’s why they’re milking this thing for everything it isn’t worth.

  • Dr_NOS

    Apparently Jen Psaki is pregnant. Let’s blame Putin for this (although from my point of view I’d consider a sheep instead. Only thinking about her it makes me vomit)

    LaRouche Denounces Frameup of Putin for Nemtsov Murder; Calls Out Obama

    U.S. economist Lyndon LaRouche decried today the fraudulent effort to frame up Russian President Vladimir Putin for the murder of liberal Russian politician Boris Nemtsov on the night of Feb 27-28. In fact, LaRouche insisted that the Nemtsov murder was nothing but a provocation directed against Putin, as he had said from the first moment it became known. The evidence is conclusive, and the stakes are life or death: peace or war. Given these circumstances, Obama’s endorsement of this frameup in a Reuters interview yesterday, merits his immediate removal from office as a last-ditch defense of the United States.

    First, on the Nemtsov murder, there is no sane way to claim that Nemtsov represented any threat whatsoever to Putin with the latter’s 87% popularity rating. Who can deny that Nemtsov was thoroughly discredited by his role in the Yeltsin administration when Western speculators destroyed Russia, or that his support was minuscule when he was killed?

    The prominent French economist and Russia expert Jacques Sapir posted an analysis today titled, “Who Framed Vladimir Putin?” It shows, on the one hand, that Nemtsov’s killing was a professional murder, like a contract murder, but, on the other hand, that it was staged in the open air, virtually under the windows of the Kremlin, in such a way as to greatly increase the risk to the killers and to the whole operation,— in order to frame Vladimir Putin.

    Among other considerations, Sapir notes that the shooting from behind implies that one has perfectly identified the target, and the modus operandi implies an expertise only compatible with a contract murder; the risk of missing or inflicting non-lethal wounds is high. Note the large number of shots, eight or more, the lack of a coup-de-grace shot, and the fact that Nemtsov’s companion was unharmed.

    “From this point of view one wonders why not wait till Nemtsov returned home? The classic type of contract killing occurs in a spot where one is sure to find the victim: the stairwell of the apartment building, or as the victim exits a restaurant. The very choice of crime-scene could indicate a demonstrative intention, such as to implicate Putin in the murder. In any case, it is evident that the assassins took risks that seem to indicate a political intention. All this makes one think of a set-up, a staging.

    “Why would these people kill Nemtsov more or less directly under the windows of the Kremlin?”

    This point made by Sapir is confirmed by the dispatch from Moscow of an unnamed, but credible correspondent of former U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union Jack Matlock, who wrote similarly,

    “The Kremlin Walls and the Bekhlimishevskaya Tower frame the scene with St. Basil’s to the right. It is simply difficult to imagine a location that could include more symbols of the Russian state. It looks like a frame-up.”

    Sapir continues,

    “How would these people have gathered knowledge about Nemtsov’s behaviour after he left the restaurant with a girl on his arm? Again, a killing at Nemtsov’s home would have made much more sense. And, if the girl is linked to the killing (even not directly and not in the intent), that would have necessitated deep connections in Ukraine.”

    (Do these have any connection to Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s connections to Ukrainian Nazis, one might ask?)

    Sapir totally discredits the notion that this could have been a murder directed by Putin, writing:

    “The media, in France and in countries of the West, have put forth the idea of a murder commanded by the Kremlin, or by movements close to Kremlin. We will say right now that the first hypothesis is not coherent with the crime scene. Further, it is hard to see what interest the Russian government would have to have one of the opposition killed, certainly a well-known opponent, but one who had fallen into the political background. When Vladimir Peskov, spokesman for President Putin, said that Nemtsov did not represent any danger nor any threat for power, it was perfectly true. And supposing the murder of Nemtsov was an attempt to frighten the others in opposition, it would have been a lot simpler to hit him at home. The idea of an involvement direct or indirect of the Russian government thus appears highly improbable.”

    After equally discrediting the notion that Nemtsov was killed by right-wing Russian nationalists, Sapir says,

    “Vladimir Putin and the Russian government have immediately advanced the hypothesis of a provocation. It is easy to see the appeal for them of this hypothesis. But one must have the honesty to say that’s what it is. Putin is actually the target of a deep and widespread hate campaign in the Western media. The killing of someone supposed to be an opponent is just something journalists could not resist. They moved on accusing him of all sins on the earth. The fact that Nemtsov was strongly linked to policies which failed in the 90s, and led Russia to the brink of collapse has been forgotten. The fact that Nemtsov has chosen to advise Orange Revolution Ukrainian governments since 2004 has been forgotten. A lot of people, and not just in Russia, could want to see Nemtsov dead. But all this has been forgotten and the rallying word is now ‘Putin is a killer,’ or ‘Putin has inspired Nemtsov’s killer.’ It is just a shame, a dirty shame. But this is consistent with the war Western media are waging against Russia and Putin.”

    Now, Obama has put himself in the middle of this frameup with a March 2 statement to Reuters which characterized Nemtsov’s murder as

    “an indication of a climate at least inside of Russia in which civil society, independent journalists, people trying to communicate on the Internet, have felt increasingly threatened, constrained. And increasingly the only information that the Russian public is able to get is through state-controlled media outlets.”

    “This means Obama has to go,” LaRouche said.

    “Because our defense is getting Obama dumped. And that would save the United States. Because the President of the United States did not deny it; he did not withhold such an allegation, he allowed it to go through. Here we are, the world is now facing a threat of thermonuclear war, global thermonuclear war, which has never happened before in the history of mankind; and you sit back there as the President of the United States and you condone the spread of a false report of this nature, and you have tacitly committed yourself to being thrown out of office. And that’s what we should do. So the dumb son-of-a-bitch knew one thing: what he was doing. And for that, for his allowing that, condoning that, and not going out there and disowning it, he is guilty.

    “Want to save the United States? Want to save civilization? That’s what you do.”
