Putin Spokesman Says Nemtsov Murder Was ‘100% Provocation’


Putin Spokesman Says Nemtsov Murder Was “100% Provocation” (ZeroHedge, Feb 28, 2015):

Just a few short hours after the terrible murder of Russian opposition politician and outspoken Putin critic Boris Nemtsov, US’ John Kerry was quick to condemn the actions of the “reformer” and demand Russia’s “expeditious investigation,” and President Obama has since issued a statement “admiring [Nemtsov’s] struggle against corruption.” The undertone was clear – ‘Putin did it’. Furthermore, President Poroshenko has claimed that Nemtsov was on the verge of “exposing direct Russian links to the Ukraine conflict.” As many realise the futility of trying to determine whether it is a Russian act, a CIA act meant to look like a Russian act, or a Russian act meant to look like a CIA act, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says the Nemtsov murder was “100% provocation… It looks like a contract killing.”

As RT reports,

Opposition politician Boris Nemtsov died in the center of Moscow after he was shot at four times. A number of leading figures from all sides of political spectrum called his murder a “provocation”.

Boris Nemtsov, a veteran opposition figure in Russia, was gunned down in a drive-by attack in central Moscow on Friday night. The murder triggered worldwide condemnation and calls to bring the killers to justice.

Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov explains…

Images from Ukraine…

As The Telegraph reports, President Poroshenko has stated that Nemtsov planned to reveal Russian links to the Ukraine conflict…

Iryna Baliacheva, a Russian political migrant living in Ukraine told reporters Putin was to blame for the murder.

“Putin opened Pandora’s box and released dangerous powers: non-acceptance of a different opinion (from his), representatives of the opposition were called traitors, while we (Ukrainians) are considered US Department of State agents.

“And now people who believed in Russia’s television lies may also believe that some robbers killed him, but I think that this was organised by Putin in order for him to stay in power.”

The gathering in Kiev came as Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, said on Saturday Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was murdered because he planned to disclose evidence of Russia’s involvement in Ukraine’s separatist conflict.

Poroshenko paid tribute to Nemtsov, who was shot dead late on Friday, and said the fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin had told him a couple of weeks ago that he had proof of Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis and would reveal it.

“Boris Nemtsov, a big friend of Ukraine and big patriot of Russia has been killed. He was like a bridge connecting Ukraine and Russia, he built the kind of relations between our countries that I would like to see,” said Poroshenko.

“To me Nemtsov is a symbol of a Russian citizen that connects (Ukraine and Russia) and sincerely respects Ukraine.”

“Boris had declared that he would provide the clear evidence of Russian Armed forces’ participation in (the war) in Ukraine.

“Somebody was afraid of this, Boris wasn’t afraid. Killers and executors were afraid.”

Secretary Kerry: February 2015 » Murder of Boris Nemtsov

I am shocked and saddened to learn of the brutal murder of former Russian Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov in central Moscow. Boris Nemtsov committed his life to a more democratic, prosperous, open Russia, and to strong relationships between Russia and its neighbors and partners, including the United States. He served his country in many roles – in the federal government, in the parliament, as Governor of Nizhniy Novgorod, and as a political leader and activist. In every post, he sought to reform and open Russia, and to empower the Russian people to have a greater say in the life of their country. His absence will be deeply felt in Russia and around the world. The United States urges the Russian authorities to act expeditiously to investigate and bring to justice those responsible. Our thoughts are with the Russian people and with Mr. Nemtsov’s family and friends as we mourn his loss.

Statement by the President on the Murder of Boris Nemtsov

The United States condemns the brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov, and we call upon the Russian government to conduct a prompt, impartial, and transparent investigation into the circumstances of his murder and ensure that those responsible for this vicious killing are brought to justice.  Nemtsov was a tireless advocate for his country, seeking for his fellow Russian citizens the rights to which all people are entitled.  I admired Nemtsov’s courageous dedication to the struggle against corruption in Russia and appreciated his willingness to share his candid views with me when we met in Moscow in 2009.  We offer our sincere condolences to Boris Efimovich’s family, and to the Russian people, who have lost one of the most dedicated and eloquent defenders of their rights.

It appears – no matter who or what was responsible – we’re back at near-Cold War levels of hostility between the USA and Russia.

Adding to that strong motive is de Kirchner’s refusal to pay the banksters what they feel they are “owed” on Argentina’s foreign debt; and her coziness with the Big Bad Putin and his BRICS trading bloc, which Argentina may be joining in the future.

  1. The biggest problem here is simple. When one has a government that lies to one at every turn, works intently on gaining control of every voice, every thought, who can believe it?

    I am speaking not of Russia, but of western media. The propaganda machine has grown like a cancer all over the west, nothing we are told is true. Everything is twisted to appease endless special interest agendas, and the welfare of any people, any nation no longer matters.

    Years ago, we had a very bright marketing man come to work with us. He once told me a profound truth: “Ask anyone about other people, and they will tell you about themselves.”

    The impotent snortings of Ass Kerry are pathetic, a man who once had some integrity, now as sold out as the special interests he married. Join the billionaire club at your own cost……………

    Everything we are told is carefully colored to suit some agenda of yet another government contractor……seeking billions more to fulfill the ambitions of a few. Such behavior historically ends very badly, and I am glad I won’t be here to see it. Another Dark Age is around the corner, and none of those with five dollars in the falsely soaring markets will face it, all keep hoping for a return to the old days. Those days of opulence, comfort and ease are gone forever, the entire country of the US has been plundered.

    Richard Nixon was the key to our destruction. In the early 1970s, he took the US off the gold standard, asserting our MFG base was strong enough to support the dollar as world reserve currency. Since our markets were still tightly regulated, #1 in the world, most nations accepted it. His efforts to take over the US were poorly engineered and fruitless. We had a free press in those days.

    Ronald Reagan was part of it, but he was a pawn in a much bigger game. The man at his side was the danger. But, when he took over, his work essentially seemed to benefit the US, a quick mercenary war in the Middle East, paid for in full by the King of Kuwait, a quick billion dollars. He came and went quietly….like a thief in the night.

    Clinton’s signing of the repeal of all the wonderful regulations that made US markets sterling in trust, respect and quality. Such national integrity was hard won, and quickly destroyed. In his lap, I lay the key to the end…..along with NAFTA.

    The Coup of 2000 was planned, quick and ruthless. The corporate media was muzzled, Internet yet too young, and those of us who saw it could find no avenue to protest. The riots at his swearing in were blacked out in the media…..and fool Americans slept through it.

    Working in employment, I saw the tens of thousands of jobs sailing away to the far east……the layoffs by the thousands. It was just awful, the work so cut into my soul, I had to leave the industry. Finding high level engineers who could move factories around the world like a moving company sickened and disgusted me. Before the Coup, most corporations valued and respected their human resources, after NAFTA & the Coup, it vanished.

    I have watched greedy guts come in with their rapacious ways and destroy the biggest economy in the world. We are but a shell of ourselves, especially in MFG which is gone, 100 million working age Americans are unemployed or scratching a living under a sinking table. The deeper, more insistent danger is our money.

    When greedy guts took over, credit was splashed all over the place. Endless credit for all…….housing prices would forever rise, the western linear view of the world would suffice. But, what goes up, must come down.

    A while back, standard business practices were to take $100 million, and leverage it into $100 billion, a thousand to one ratio. Now, they leverage the leveraged funds. The entire western economy, including the US are now in negative territory, triple digit debt to GDP. Every cent that comes in has already been spent. No growth, no incomes equal collapse. Look at Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, France, the UK, Belgium, Ireland…….the entire western economy is buried.

    I am not going into the falling status of the world reserve currency but to say technology has rendered the need for such things obsolete. In 2010, the US dollar was used in 100% of all international transactions. Today, it is down to 30%, used by what is left of the EU.

    They have built a house of cards so precariously that one little country, be it Greece or Germany….can pull the whole thing down. It will happen, and when it does, God preserve the west.
