Kerry: US seeks 'transparent, real' probe into Nemtsov murder

Russia's opposition supporters carry portraits of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov during a march in central Moscow on March 1, 2015US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday urged Russia to carry out a “thorough, transparent, real investigation” into the murder of a Russian opposition leader who fiercely criticized President Vladimir Putin. Boris Nemtsov was shot dead in Moscow on Friday, just two days before he was due to lead a major anti-government rally. “The bottom line is that we hope there will be a thorough, transparent, real investigation not just who actually fired the shots, but who if anyone may have ordered or instructed this or been behind this,” Kerry, said on ABC television’s “This Week” program. Another leading figure in US politics, former Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein, said she did not know if Putin played a possible role in Nemtsov’s death.
