Thousands set to march in Moscow to honour Boris Nemtsov
March 1, Moscow: Thousands of people are expected to take part in the streets of Moscow to honour opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, who was shot dead on Friday.
He was due to lead an opposition march on Sunday but his supporters will now be marching to mourn his death.
President Vladimir Putin condemned Mr Nemtsov’s murder as “vile and cynical” and said he will work to find the killers.
Opposition supporters are due to gather in central Moscow at 14:00 local time on Sunday, before marching to the spot on Great Moskvoretsky Bridge where Nemtsov was killed.
Moscow city authorities had previously approved a march for up to 50,000 people but organisers said more people might now attend following the murder.
