“Words are cast into bullets”
Many commentators, refraining from specific charges, see the cause of the death of Boris Nemtsov in the atmosphere that is created in the country of the current government.
“If the federal TV channels continuous river pours raving about the fifth column (which, incidentally, has launched in the course of Putin himself) … if the leader of the opposition at any time to bring to justice or just sit in the bullpen … – it is not very important to Putin personally gave the order … or put someone who believes Putin “wimp”, incapable of decisive action is not … “- says economist Sergei Aleksashenko.
He called the killing of opposition “the harsh truth of today’s Russia”.
“When a society such degree of hatred, ideological war with” liberastov “and could not result in anything else,” – says journalist and TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak.
The same idea develops journalist Ivan Vlasov: in his opinion, the supporters and opponents of the current government and its policies have a common enemy – the hatred. “If you do not win hatred – perish or friend another, or within yourself or as Nemtsov, really “.
The film critic Anton Dolin said that the death Nemtsov involved everyone who helped turn the word” democracy “and” liberal “in curses.

“They shot Nemtsov. All this looks like a sacred victim near the Kremlin before the march of the opposition. How to Boeing for the next arrival on the EP, “- wrote in the” Twitter “singer Oleg Gazmanov.
” The unfortunate Nemtsov was sacrificed number march “Spring” – right under the date “all neatly.” His body – as electroshock to revitalize the opposition. “To come out”, “to anger”, – says Dmitry Olshansky blogger.

” Damn, someone they mean? Whose provocation and against whom ?, – writes journalist Darya Danilova. – Kremlin against the opposition and “Spring”? Yes it will spur even more split, and even more people will bring to the street. Opposition to the Kremlin? This is a series of “Mafia killed her to throw arrows”? Nonsense “.
The journalist Maxim Kononenko also doubts this theory: “When the beat Kashin, I called Deme Kudryavtsev – like how I can help – and he told me a wise thing: you do realize that with his manner and the terms of this communication could would be anyone. That’s the same way with Boris Nemtsov. It could be anyone, and the reason could be anything “.
However, he categorically rejected the version of the involvement of the authorities.” I do not remember that power has ever run into Boris Nemtsov. He does not interfere completely “- wrote Kononenko in the” Facebook “.

” until I can prove otherwise, I’m just going to assume that the same ghost super-hired killer removed Nisman and Nemtsov, “- says an American professor Daniel Drezner.
Dutch journalist Olaf Koons recalls:” Boris Nemtsov was a great sense of humor, his laugh every time rolled across his chest. Honest, charming man. That is what they are most afraid of “.
