Putin speaks about possible anti-government provocations involving the ‘sacrifices’ of oppositions leaders.
Putin in 2012 – Opposition is looking to turn someone into “involuntary martyr”
One thing needs to be kept in mind concerning the recent Nemtsov murder: he was a politician way past his prime. According to a recent Levada Center poll, most Russians didn’t even know he existed.
Moreover, as can be seen in the poll (link below), opposition leaders like Mironov, Yavlinski, Kudrin, Navalny, Ryzhnkov, Dmitrieva all scored LOWER on name recognition but HIGHER on support. Nemtsov was unpopular even among the opposition; this comes from being a Yeltsin-era politician, and hence(perhaps blamelessly) being associated with images of societal collapse and corruption.
Many even argue that Nemtsov was a “decorative” asset for Putin as a stable, familiar, relatively honest but powerless opposition figure.
In short, this is assassination makes no sense: Nemtsov as a martyr is a far, far bigger problem for Putin than he ever was alive – If not within Russia itself, where most people seem to be baffled (this is sort of like if someone assassinated Ross Perot), then on the international diplomatic and mass media stage, where people can be easily convinced Nemtsov was killed because he “was a threat to Putin”.
Three years ago, Putin warned about this exact scenario.
Who benefits? May be internal Russian opposition, Ukrainian government, American government, heck even islamic extremists – but Putin doesn’t benefit, that’s for sure.
Make your own conclusions.

(anyone still wanna parrot mainstream media claims that he was a “rising star” of Russian politics and a real threat to Putin?)
Nemtsov’s murder caught on CCTV camera
The murder of Boris Nemtsov that took place on a bridge in central Moscow overnight on Friday was caught on an all-weather camera belonging to TVC television. The low-resolution video hints that the killer may have been waiting for Nemtsov at the bridge.
The camera captured a wide shot of Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, near the Kremlin, where the crime took place. The quality of the footage is only good enough to distinguish the cars on the bridge and the figures of people moving along it.
According to the video, the politician was gunned down at 23:31 Moscow time by a killer who was allegedly waiting for him on the stairs of the bridge.
The murder happened when Nemtsov and his companion – a woman in a white coat, allegedly Ukrainian model Anna Duritskaya – were covered from the camera by a snow-clearing vehicle passing by.
The alleged killer then ran towards a car which was stopped on the bridge several meters away. He got into the passenger’s seat, and the vehicle drove off.
A witness to Nemtsov’s murder has described the killer to police.
“We are looking for a man 170-175 cm (5 foot, 7 inches) high, of regular physique, dark cropped hair. He was wearing blue jeans and a brown sweater,” a police source told LifeNews.
The same source said the car the killer used was a silver-colored VAZ-21102, with North Ossetia number plates.
