Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov has expressed condolence in connection with murder of Russia’s top opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, being sorry that he was not able to participate in mourning rally in Moscow March 1.
“The world has lost real fighter and a citizen. I was not able to join tens of thousands of conscientious citizens of Russia to express my grief about Boris Nemtsov’s killing. I also won’t be able to participate in civil funeral of Nemtsov on March 3”- Chubarov wrote in Facebook.
Head of Mejlis also noted, that Boris Nemtsov was among Russia’s few politicians who supported Crimean Tatar people.
“It is hard to lose a friend, still it is harder not to have an opportunity to give Nemtsov a bow, as he has openly supported Crimean Tatars in the time of mass insanity of Russia’s citizens”- Chubarov said.
Russia’s top opposition leader, former Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov, was shot dead, late on Feb 27, near the Kremlin, just a day before the planned Peace March in Moscow.
Hours before the killing, Nemtsov went on radio to urge Russians to join him at a Sunday rally in Moscow to protest against the Ukraine war and Putin's rule.
After his murder the protest was turned into a memorial march, with gathered tens of thousands people.
