Independent investigators looking into the murder of Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov, who have previously claimed the Security Bureau of Ukraine (SBU) may have been involved in the crime, will provide further updates next week, former German intelligence agent and a representative of the investigative group Wilhelm Dietl told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the investigative group called Ost-Objektiv, consisting of a dozen former Western politicians and intelligence officers, presented a report in which they suggested that the SBU could stand to gain from Nemtsov's death by creating unrest in Moscow. The timing of the assassination was thought through, the report suggested, as the politician was due to lead a protest march in Moscow shortly after the fatal attack.

“We have a few more items which we have to check and then we will come up again with additions, probably early next week,” Dietl, who worked for the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in the early 90s, said.

He added that none of the Ost-Objektiv group members, whose names are being kept secret, knew Nemtsov in person.

"The group thinks that people tend to forget such events. It is over a year and nothing has really happened, we haven't heard much since last time. And these people [investigators] decided to try to find some more accounts to enlighten this subject," Wilhelm Dietl said, explaining the motives behind the independent investigation by foreign nationals.
