There shoudl be a special recognition for the dedication he held for Russia.

Russia will remain deprived of vision and a future with promise if their leaders continue to be killed before they even have a chance to bring new ideas.

New ideas doesn't mean the elimination of culture or government. New ideas bring better economies. A future vision is important. It is very important to young minds that hold their country in high esteem.

If Mr. Nemtsov was killed to cause instability, then his murderers were wrong. Mr. Nemtsov SERVED Russia. I imagine he would sit with friends in conversation and talk politics, but, the reality is that no matter who is leading a nation, it is the nation that provides the impetus to change. A political leader can only hope the people find their vision as important as the country's future. One man cannot change a country alone.

It is difficult to see Russia go through the loss of another hero, another man dedicated to a new vision for the people of Russia. The people of Russia deserve their political leaders and still today there are those that want to take the lives of men and women prepared to be a leader.

Moscow's murder rate is 4.6 per 100,000. It is lower than Caracas, Mexico City, Bogata, New York City and Tibilisi. I can't imagine a crime other than a targeted murder was committed. I am sure he was not a reckless man without regard for his safety. This was an assassination. Please stop hating each other so intensely.

MOSCOW: Opposition supporters (click here) will march through Moscow on Sunday in memory of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, whose murder has increased concern about Russia's future among opponents of President Vladimir Putin.
Thousands of people laid flowers and lit candles on Saturday on a bridge near the Kremlin where the opposition politician and former deputy prime minister was shot dead late on Friday.

National investigators who answer to Putin say they are pursuing several lines of inquiry, including the possibility that Nemtsov, a Jew, was killed by radical Islamists or that the opposition killed him to blacken the president's name...

It would seem that Russia's politics hasn't matured from "If you can't jail them, then kill them."

He deserves a state funeral. He was deeply involved in politics in Russia and served the country well under Former President Boris Yeltsin.

Deepest sympathy to his family, friends and political peers. 

St. Petersburg was once the capital of Russia, it appear recognizing Moscow and Red Square was a gigantic mistake. The people opposing the royal rulers of Russia aren't any more safe, perhaps another revolution is in order.
