Two years ago, Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was assassinated on the street near the Kremlin. The murder has never been solved.
Three prominent Kremlin-critical journalists have left Russia in recent months. They cite various reasons for leaving, but one event looms large behind their departures: the Russian presidential election next March.
The killing of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was the most high-profile political assassination in recent years. A court heard a former Chechen security official ordered the murder for a $270,000 (237,000 euro) bounty.
The Communist Party may still be the largest opposition party in the Russian parliament, but as Russia marks the 100th anniversary of 1917, celebrations of the Bolshevik Revolution have been decidedly muted.
A number of important questions about the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov remain unanswered, even after a guilty verdict was handed down against five accused perpetrators, says Ingo Mannteufel.
