A moment later a man, possibly the killer, is seen running out from behind the snowplow and jumps into the waiting car. Just how he got on the bridge is hard to say though.
It looks like the murder was carefully planned in advance. It was initially announced that the getaway car was white, but, judging by the video footage, it was gray.
Eight shots were fired, possibly from a Makarov pistol, four of them found their target. Boris Nemtsov died on the spot.
At the moment, investigators are looking into five possible motives behind Nemtsov’s assassination.
According to Vladimir Markin, spokesman for the Investigative Committee, the murder could have been a provocation to destabilize the political situation in Russia.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said he will personally oversee the investigation of the assassination, which he called “vile and cynical.”
