The killing of Boris Nemtsov and the Spring (Vesna) Youth Movement in Moscow

russian-dissident-boris-nemtsov

On the night of February 27, 2015, Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed in Moscow. Nemtsov was a leading Kremlin critic in Russia, and, along with Alexei Navalny and others, was planning and organizing the Vesna opposition march set to take place on March 1.

ALERT: Russian Opposition Leader SHOT DEAD – Ukraine 2.0 Incoming?:

http://21stcenturywire.com/2015/02/27/alert-russian-opposition-leader-boris-nemtsov-shot-dead-in-moscow/

An Opposition Leader’s Death Could Spark a Backlash, from Stratfor:

There are reports that Nemtsov was shot four to seven times in the chest by multiple assailants who jumped out of a car on a bridge just south of Red Square. The shooting was professional and smooth, with well-aimed fire and no deaths of bystanders. The bridge served as a channel to trap the victim, giving him nowhere to run. The killing was also brazen, taking place near the Kremlin, which has heavy security and heavy CCTV coverage. He reportedly was walking with a woman from Kiev, who was approximately 24 years old, and without a security detail.

Nemtsov is among a group of established anti-Putin leaders that include Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Mikhail Kasyanov (People’s Democratic Union), Garry Kasparov (Other Russia coalition) and Vladimir Ryzhkov (Republican Party of Russia). Nemtsov, like most of these leaders, has a mixed reputation in Russia. Much of the population associates Nemtsov with former President Boris Yeltsin’s disastrous economic plan of the 1990s. But Nemtsov jumped onto the anti-Kremlin bandwagon of Alexei Navalny, the anti-corruption blogger who is considered the chief opposition leader in Russia.

Vladimir Putin – the automatic Lee Harvey Oswald

Reminiscent of the immediate rush to judgement to blame Putin for the downing of Malaysia Airlines MH17, the implication that this was an assassination ordered by the Kremlin came before any clear details emerged – indicating that another Putin demonization campaign was already in the works.

The phrase “Putin critic” is currently the omnipresent headline in the Western media. A simple Google search will suffice:

Boris Nemtsov, outspoken Putin critic… – CNN.com; Boris Nemtsov, leading Putin critic, shot… – Fox News; Putin Critic Boris Nemtsov Shot Dead – NPR; Major Putin Critic Gunned Down in Moscow – The Daily Beast; Leading Putin critic gunned down outside Kremlin – Telegraph; Putin Critic Boris Nemtsov Shot Dead in Moscow – NBC News; Putin Critic Boris Nemtsov Shot Dead in Moscow – Newsweek

11046824_803432733067711_3131662819795968920_n

This swiftly-appearing implication is not based on any evidence. Putin is the automatic Lee Harvey Oswald in the fantasies of the Russophobic western media.

ABC News – Boris Nemtsov Joins List of Dead Vladimir Putin Critics:

http://abcnews.go.com/International/boris-nemtsov-joins-list-dead-vladimir-putin-critics/story?id=29292143

From the Stratfor article above:

Navalny and his followers plan to hold mass rallies in Moscow and 14 other cities on March 1 — the first such rally possible since the 2011-2012 demonstrations against the Kremlin — to protest Russia’s actions in Ukraine…

Nemtsov’s death makes this weekend’s events even more important. The shooting will bring out a string of conspiracy theories in Russia because the Kremlin has long wanted Nemtsov out of the way. Nemtsov reportedly told the media just weeks ago that he feared Putin would kill him. However, the Kremlin also knows that Nemtsov’s death the day before the rally could spark a backlash and bring out more protesters. March 1 is a day to watch Moscow for the size of the protests, and whether Putin can maintain the peace. As Lenin said, the purpose of terrorism is to terrify. Nemtsov’s death had the purpose of creating terror. The question is who wanted to create it.

People who normally whine about “conspiracy theorists” will eagerly accept the Putin-did-it conspiracy theory! Contrary to what Stratfor is suggesting, however, these nouveau conspiracy theorists are much more likely to be American and European than Russian.

With the Vesna march only two days away, why would Vladimir Putin want to give this anti-Kremlin event all this wonderful free publicity? Why would Putin want to give Vesna a martyr? 

Eric Kraus: Had the Kremlin wanted him out of the way there were other ways – especially in Moscow. A car crash. An (induced) heart attack. Poisons. Why do a public hit within sight of St. Basel’s Cathedral on Red Square so as to provide a public feast for the foreign press picture editors? The timing is equally suspicious. Perfectly timed to draw maximum attention to the upcoming opposition March which had risked falling flat. (Eric Kraus, Facebook status update.)

Peter Lavelle: “…and of course Putin is at fault.” Of course we all know that is how the west will read this. Nonetheless, before all the low-octane analysis and clueless reporting starts let’s be clear: Nemtsov was politically so (self-) marginalized in Russia that he had to go aboard for anyone to notice him (like Kiev). He was political dead before he was murdered. Thus, there can be no doubt this is a false flag op. Many in Washington are grinning and probably celebrating. No matter. Russians will not be fooled by this kind of cheap and deadly propaganda attack. (Peter Lavelle, Facebook status update.)

Major Critic Of Vladimir Putin Shot Dead In Moscow:

Irina Khakamada, a prominent opposition figure who co-founded a liberal party with Nemtsov, blamed a climate of intimidation and warned that the murder could herald a dangerous destabilization. “It’s a provocation that is clearly not in Putin’s interests, it’s aimed at rocking the situation,” she said in remarks carried by RIA Novosti news agency.

Breaking news: FALSE FLAG IN MOSCOW!:

There are folks in Langley tonight who got a promotion.

http://thesaker.is/breaking-news-false-flag-in-moscow/

It is also strange that the BBC’s initial report of the Nemtsov shooting quotes the Riga-based Russian start-up news site called Meduza:

According to Russian-language news website Meduza, “several people” got out of a car and shot him.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-31669061

Why wouldn’t the BBC look to other Russian news sites in Moscow, opting instead to use a fledgling Riga, Latvia-based news aggregator as their source?


What is Meduza?

Meduza is a news website formed from the ashes of Lenta.ru, which some claim was smashed to pieces by the Kremlin. Some of the top people from Lenta decided to set up shop outside of Russia, and they chose former Soviet city and modern-day neo-Nazi stronghold Riga, Latvia as their base of operations for this anti-Putin project. They have tried to deny ties to Kremlin opposition leader and notorious oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, but some insiders claim that Meduza is one of Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia projects – itself being a George Soros Open Society project. One of the editors at Meduza has admitted…

that Mikhail Khodorkovsky… was a passive investor, however she refused to name any other backers…

What is Open Russia?

Open Russia was launched by Mikhail Khodorkovsky during an online conference held on September 20, 2014.

Open Russia today is about bringing together citizens living both inside and outside of Russia, who share the European values of a strong, dynamic, and forward-looking state founded upon effective democratic institutions and the rule of law. Open Russia will enable these citizens to communicate and work together, to make their voices heard, and to mobilise effectively in the cause of common interests and goals.

http://www.khodorkovsky.com/what-is-open-russia/

Citizens “who share European values”? That sounds a little like Euromaidan – they talk about change, democracy, European values, working together and making your voice heard, and fighting corruption, but have no real program for economic prosperity.

But Open Russia also sounds like something else: the Open Society of George Soros!

George Soros is the founder and chairman of Open Society—a network of foundations, partners, and projects in more than 100 countries.

http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros

The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky:

With his new billions in effect stolen from the Russian people, he made some powerful friends. He set up a foundation modeled on US billionaire George Soros’ Open Society, calling it the Open Russia Foundation. He invited two powerful Westerners to its board—Henry Kissinger and Jacob Lord Rothschild.

Meduza is also connected to opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was recently detained for handing out Vesna fliers in the Moscow Metro:

http://www.kommersant.ru/doc/2668678

The Vesna march, or Vesna (Spring) Youth Movement march, is set to kick off on March 1.

The organizers of the opposition march Vesna, which is scheduled for March 1, have agreed to hold it in the Moscow Maryino area, Boris Nemtsov, co-chairman of the party RPR-PARNAS, told a press conference on Friday. “After intensive debate and consultations, we came to the conclusion that we agree to hold the march in Maryino,” Nemtsov said. Nemtsov emphasized that the demands of the march are more important to the opposition that its venue. “The main thing to us is that all residents, including residents of Maryino, hear our demands,” Nemtsov said.

Ahead of this, the Vesna people put out a YouTube video of university students in Moscow apologizing to Ukraine for Putin’s actions.

Who is Alexei Navalny?

Navalny and Neoliberalism:

Navalny is a right-wing populist. No doubt. But I would submit he’s more of an American variety than a European facsimile. His xenophobia comes with an anti-elitist élan tinged with a libertarian distrust of big government. If Navalny ran in a US election, he’d find common cause with the Tea Party. He’d make an excellent Fox News pundit if he added flamboyancy to his abrasiveness.

http://seansrussiablog.org/2013/08/01/navalny-and-neoliberalism/

Exploring the possibility of a ‘Russian Maidan’

The political front that will take to Russia’s streets has already long been identified. It includes the same brand of extreme “nationalists” and ultra-right groups seen overrunning Ukraine’s political order. This includes literal Neo-Nazis. One of the prevailing figures among Russia’s ultra-right is US-backed Alexey Navalny – billed by the West as an “anti-corruption activist,” who is in all reality a neo-fascist operating openly in the service of Wall Street.

Alexey Navalny was a Yale World Fellow, and in his profile it states: Navalny spearheads legal challenges on behalf of minority shareholders in large Russian companies, including Gazprom, Bank VTB, Sberbank, Rosneft, Transneft, and Surgutneftegaz, through the Union of Minority Shareholders… Navalny is also co-founder of the Democratic Alternative movement…

The Democratic Alternative, also written DA!, is a US State Department National Endowment for Democracy (NED) fund recipient, implicating Alexey Navalny as an agent of US-funded sedition. The US State Department itself reveals this as they list DA! among many of the “youth movements” they support operating in Russia…

That this funding is nowhere on NED’s official website indicates that full disclosures are not being made and that NED is engaged in clandestine funding.

http://journal-neo.org/2014/12/20/the-impending-russian-maidan/

More on Navalny:

https://bperet.wordpress.com/2014/12/20/color-revolutions-financial-warfare-against-russia/

Navalny was detained for handing out Vesna fliers in the Metro, and now, one of the key organizers of Vesna, Nemtsov, has been shot. Again, it is hard to imagine what possible gain this shooting could be for the Kremlin, especially following the large anti-Maidan march in Moscow of the previous weekend, and Putin’s growing approval ratings.

This obviously could be to the benefit of any number of Putin enemies, including the Russian opposition to Putin, the Kiev fascist clique, the CIA, and NATO. It remains to be seen which suspect emerges as the strongest, whether it is one of these suspects or someone else.

Anti-Putin Opposition Looks to Russian Spring for Revival:

Just before he was jailed for handing out leaflets at a metro station, Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny used his last moments in a Moscow court to record a video urging supporters to join a March 1 protest against President Vladimir Putin.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-26/anti-putin-opposition-looks-to-russian-spring-for-revival

The article goes on to say:

The opposition “hasn’t been this weak for many years,” Stefan Meister, an analyst at the German Council of Foreign Relations in Berlin, said by phone. “Even when we have a growing economic crisis in Russia, there’s still high support for Putin.”

US-Backed Opposition Leader Gunned Down in Moscow:

Clearly to match the expectations the “spring” rally was meant to have, to infuse the “virus” US Senator McCain had claimed was intended for Moscow, something drastic would have to be done to change the current calculus.

http://journal-neo.org/2015/02/28/russia-us-backed-opposition-leader-gunned-down-in-moscow/

The “current calculus” has indeed been changed. It remains to be seen who will benefit from this and how each side will react. The Vesna marches will go on as planned, apart from the one in Moscow.

Funeral March to Replace Moscow Opposition Rally After Nemtsov Murder:

The planned Vesna (“Spring”) opposition rallies will take place as scheduled outside of Moscow, but the one in the Russian capital will be replaced with a funeral march in memory of Boris Nemtsov, a Russian politician killed late Friday night, co-chair of the RPR-PARNAS political party, Mikhail Kasyanov, has told journalists.

Russian Investigators: Nemtsov Killing Linked to Charlie Hebdo Comments:

Investigators are working on the hypothesis that the killing of Boris Nemtsov was related to his stance on the attack of Charlie Hebdo magazine. “Nemtsov received threats related to his position on the shooting of journalists in the office of Charlie Hebdo edition in Paris,” Vladimir Markin, who represents the Investigative Committee of the Russian Fedеration…

Police Arrest Ukrainian Lawmaker at Nemtsov’s Funeral March in Moscow:

Moscow police confirmed the arrest of Ukrainian parliament member Oleksiy Goncharenko ahead of the march commemorating slain Russian politician Boris Nemtsov on Sunday. Goncharenko took part in the violent events in southern Ukraine’s Odessa on May 2, 2014, when far-right activists blocked anti-EU protesters inside the city’s House of Trade Unions and set the building on fire. According to official statistics, the incident killed 48 people and wounded over 250.

Goncharenko posted photos of dead activists in Odessa on Twitter and expressed public support for “cleansing” of the camp of the opponents of the newly-installed Ukrainian authorities.

Scandal: John McCain is ashamed of America, supports fascists and terrorists

0

Senator John McCain has been one of the leading advocates of arming the fascist junta of Kiev and the ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Now he says he is ashamed of America!

John McCain: I’m ashamed of my country:

“This is a shameful chapter. I’m ashamed of my country. I’m ashamed of my president. And I’m ashamed of myself,” McCain said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

McCain, a former presidential candidate, strongly believes the US should be providing weapons to Ukraine’s government, which is battling Russian-backed separatists.

http://www.businessinsider.com/john-mccain-im-ashamed-of-my-country-2015-2

Senator McCain continues with his anti-American rant:

“Honestly, it’s terrible,” McCain said. “The Ukrainians aren’t asking for American boots on the ground.”

Yes, they are!

“That’s not the question here. They’re asking for weapons to defend themselves.”

And when they get those weapons, what do they do with them?

 Fascist Friends

John McCain has lost his mind. He has become a reckless warmonger and a raving, hysterical Russophobe with absolutely no regard for American interests or the lives of American troops, who are being put at risk of a bloody, devastating war with Russia for the benefit of his fascist friends in Kiev.

 Ashamed of America and the President?

So John McCain supports Neo-Nazis in Kiev and ISIS terrorists in Syria… and now he says he’s ashamed of America?

As many people have pointed out, if George W. Bush had done any of the things Obama has been doing, like drone-striking women and children throughout the Middle East and helping to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, leaving Libya in utter chaos and turmoil, the left libs would be screaming bloody murder!

But now imagine if Obama had said the things John McCain has said. What if Obama announced that he was ashamed of America? How would the right-wingers on Fox News react to that? Probably the same way they reacted to these less harmful incidents:

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2009/09/23/obama_shatters_our_self_esteem_denies_american_exceptionalism2

I never thought I would find myself defending President Obama, but here we are! Obama is far from perfect, but he has tried (in his own pathetic way) to slow down the “bomb everything that moves” agenda, at least since the disaster of Libya, and now he finds himself under constant attack by neocon nutjobs like John McCain. Obama should at least be supported when he wavers on the warmongering agenda, because wavering is better than what the Republicans have in mind, which is – war with Russia to oust Putin and support Kiev’s genocide in eastern Ukraine, war in Syria to remove Assad, and more war in Iraq.


 Enough is Enough!

Senator John McCain is a lowlife scum, and I am ashamed of him! #ArrestMcCain4ISIS

Forget all our other troubles – the Russians are coming!:

The gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow. Train and bus fares continue to rise. Twice as many people are living in poverty than 30 years ago. And our National Health Service is being privatized before our very eyes. But hey – we Brits must forget about all those things – because there’s something far more important to worry about. The Russians are coming!

Defending Ukraine from Russian imperialism?:

In Bertrand Russell’s A History of Western Philosophy, the philosopher delivered his summarization of the writings of Catholic theologian Thomas Aquinas thusly, “Before he begins to philosophize, he already knows the truth; it is declared in the Catholic faith. If he can find apparently rational arguments for some parts of the faith, so much the better; if he cannot, he need only fall back on revelation. The finding of arguments for a conclusion given in advance is not philosophy, but special pleading.”

American foreign policy is determined in much the same fashion…

One lie is that Putin has a feverishly expansionist foreign policy. No evidence exists for this claim, repeated ad nauseum in the West…

Another lie is that we know Russia was behind the downing of MH17…

A third lie is that the toppling of Viktor Yanukovych was a democratic uprising…

A fourth lie is that Western sanctions against Russia are merited, since they are based on Russian aggression…

This isn’t nuanced propaganda. It isn’t hedging or garden variety bias. It’s flat-out mendacity…

How soon before the term “Hun” starts circulating?

Non-Kremlin Sources on the Ukraine Crisis

18a

There is the idea that if you argue in favor of the Russian perspective, or against the Kiev fascist clique/Euromaidan perspective, this means you have become a victim (or are a paid agent) of Russian propaganda, or the “Kremlin propaganda machine” as it’s often called.

This issue is a distraction, but it keeps coming up, so we’re going to address it here. People like this guy can’t formulate an argument based on facts and evidence, so they believe they can counter anything they disagree with by saying it’s from a Russian source:

Roman K: Try to do a little research (not katsap sources) and maybe you will learn a little history and reality… you are aware that muscovy is home to nearly half the world’s fascists & nazis, right? Many are putler’s buddies… You are aware that katsaps, including the main katsap, collaborated with hitler, right? You are aware that you are so full of katsap useful idiot propaganda, right?

Note: Katsap is a derogatory term for Russian used by Ukrainians.

We haven’t done “a little research” and don’t know “a little history” like you, Roman. We’ve done a lot of research and know a lot of history too. Perhaps it isn’t the Russophobic, revanchist, whine-fest version of history taught in Ukrainian and other eastern European schools, but it’s never too late for you!

Here are just a few of the non-Katsap, non-Kremlin-funded, non-Russian sources we use in our research of the Ukraine crisis and its connection to the political situation in Russia. Inclusion in this list does not denote endorsement of the individual’s overall views:
