“The people who planned the murder, they knew they would hit in the very heart of the Russian opposition,” he said during an international meeting of lawmakers at the Lithuanian parliament.

In his words, Nemtsov’s death is a huge loss for the Russian opposition as he was the one who managed to unite people with different political views and bring them to one table. He was also the initiator and organizer of the majority of protests and successfully used his 25 years of experience of working in various government positions.

“25 years of work in Russia’s top positions made him a threat to the government,” Ryzhkov said, adding that the Russian opposition does not have a replacement for Nemtsov at the moment.
