Boris Nemtsov Shooting: This is How They Did It

by Scott Creighton

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.

Russian Traitor Boris Nemtsov Getting Marching Orders at U.S. Embassy in 2012 (video)

by Scott Creighton

Want to know why so many Russians hated Boris Nemtsov? Here’s a video of him paying a visit on U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael Anthony McFaul, just after McFaul took office back in 2012. It’s well understood here and in Russia, that McFaul’s task was to attempt to instigate a color revolution in Russia from day one.

“Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can’t recite Pushkin by heart. I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions” (emphasis added). Michael Anthony McFaul

“(Hillary) Clinton noted that McFaul, who is a specialist in democratic transitiona Kommersant headline from January 11 touted him as a “color revolution specialist” – is uniquely suited for his new post, given Russia’s current climate.” Russia Profile

So in comes the color revolution specialist and one of the first to meet and greet the neoliberal scum, is Boris Nemtsov. Go figure.

Putin in 2012 – Opposition is looking to turn someone into “involuntary martyr”

by Scott Creighton

If the translation is accurate, Vladamir Putin told an audience 3 years ago that Western interests, looking to force a regime change in Russia, would sacrifice an opposition member and try to blame it on Putin or the establishment in Moscow.

Considering how many Russians knew of Boris Nemtsov and hated him, he was a prime candidate to be offered up as the regime change’s sacrificial lamb.

According to a Jan. 2014 Poll, Boris Nemtsov Was One of the LEAST Trusted Opposition Leaders in Moscow with 1% Approval Rating

by Scott Creighton

A “leading opposition member” huh? Right.

According to the numbers below, Boris Nemtsov was one of the best known and LEAST TRUSTED members of the opposition in Russia. That means the people KNEW HIM and HATED HIM. So yeah, when Putin said 3 years ago that the neoliberals who were trying to destabilize Russia would sacrifice someone to make a martyr out of them, I guess that makes Boris the best choice, right?

Out of 1600+ people surveyed, 45% knew who he was. Only 1% of them trusted him.

Vladamir Putin is enjoying 86% approval ratings right now. What does that tell you?
