    An important witness in Boris Nemtsov's murder, Anna Duritskaya, says she has been threatened in Ukraine.

    All necessary measures to protect the only witness in the politician's murder are being taken.

    "On March 5, Anna Duritskaya, who is a witness in the case in the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, turned to the Ukrainian police in the Kiev Region <…> with a statement on a threat to her life from unidentified individuals while she was at her parents’ residence," the Prosecutor General’s Office said in a statement.

    Nemtsov, 55, who once held high positions during the late Yeltsin administration, was shot dead last week while walking across a bridge next to the Kremlin in downtown Moscow with Duritskaya, a 23-year-old Ukrainian model, who has since returned to Ukraine.
