NEW YORK (Sputnik) – US spy agencies were not behind the killing of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov and do not know who was responsible, US director of national intelligence James Clapper said on Monday.

"I don't know. We don't know. We don't have any unique insight as to who did this," Clapper told the Council on Foreign Relations, a New York think tank, Monday.

Clapper added that the anti-US allegations were made to "create discontent in the political fabric of Russia."
