UPDATE (H/T ariadnatheo ): Anna Duritskaya refused to take a polygraph and she was also a mistress of another powerful man, National Guard regimental commander of Ukraine “Dnepr-1” and the Verkhovna Rada deputy Yurii Birch.
UPDATE 2: And… they let her go.
“Anna Duritskaya, a Ukrainian model who was with Russian politician Boris Nemtsov when he was shot in Moscow on February 27, was released by the Russian investigative authorities on Monday…”
“.. she is in a difficult mental condition and is trying to come to her senses”
“The witness noted that she does not remember the night of Nemtsov’s killing well.”
” When the politician fell, Duritskaya ran to a snowplow driver for help and called the police.”
The shooting of Boris Nemtsov was obviously planned as an operation of destabilization, an attempt to undermine the current, freely elected and popularly supported government in Russia.
When the Russian secret services decide to remove a threat, much like ours, they can do so in such a manner that you would never know they were there. In a way even the coroner wouldn’t know it was murder. They don’t resort to ham-handed public executions like this one which looks more like a Bloods V Crips drive-by than a modern day political assassination. The point is, someone wanted this event to be seen and recognized as a hit. Moscow certainly wouldn’t have wanted that, which begs the question: who would have?
Details of the shooting are still scattered and in some cases, self-contradictory. There are still multiple news outlets reporting the early, misleading details that emerged within hours of the shooting, namely that a white car pulled up alongside the couple as they were walking across the bridge and someone jumped out and shot Nemtsov a number of times, then hopped back in the car and it sped off.
Where this version of events came from is not explained at this time. It’s possible that this is what Anna Duritskaya initially told Russian investigators prior to the release of the unverified TV Tsentr video that showed the shooting on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge near the Kremlin.
The Tsentr video exposes the depth of the plot in such a way that a random car driving by shooting the man doesn’t. You see, there is a reason that the “drive-by” story was spun in the first place: it implies that the act was a reaction to finding the couple on the bridge rather than what it really was… a man being led to an ambush.
And that’s a very important distinction.
A security system like the KGB would be expected to follow someone they wanted to hit via cell phone tracking or what not and then improvise the murder. At least, that is, in this Pollyanna imagining of how state power works. In reality they would simply break into his home while he was having dinner with Anna elsewhere and spike his prune juice with the radionuclide polonium-210 (210Po)
Let’s get back to what actually happened that night.
The story of the white car is still being reported by some to this very day in spite of the fact that the video of the hit exists and refutes that claim. As I stated before, there is a reason for that.
Boris Nemtsov was lured into an ambush and he could only have been brought there by one person: Anna Duritskaya.
This is a key aspect of this investigation because quite simply, if one part of the plot falls apart, the rest is sure to follow.
In this article, I intend to show two things: what has happened with Anna Duritskaya since the event took place and how it was laid out by the plotters for optimum security of the participants and maximum dramatic effect.
In the second part of the essay I will lay out the four participants of the plot: the hook, the cover, the asset and the escape. They are all clearly visible in the video and are all key aspects of this event.
