Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova is shocked by the murder of the opposition member and former Vice Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov.
"The people who planned and committed this murder are wicked and cynical evildoers. They will get their deserts for what they’ve done. This is not only a shot in Nemtsov’s back. This is a shot in Russia’s back," Ms Pamfilova told Interfax.
"It’s hard to speak. I’ve known Boris since 90s. I’m in deep shock. It’s a tragedy." Ms Pamfilova said.
Mr Nemtsov was murdered on Friday night in the centre of Moscow. Reportedly the politician was shot dead from a car passing by.
