    According to the Russian prime minister, the investigation of Russian opposition activist Boris Nemtsov’s murder is an issue of national reputation.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Thorough investigation of Russian opposition activist Boris Nemtsov’s murder is an issue of national reputation, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

    “This is a real tragedy and a crime that must be investigated… There can be no doubt there. This is indeed an issue of reputation for the Russian justice system and the state,” Medvedev said in an interview with the Euronews television.

    On February 27, 2015, Nemtsov, who occupied a number of senior positions in the Russian government in the 1990s, and was an active opposition politician in the 2000s, was shot dead in downtown Moscow near Kremlin.
