Here’s a snippet:/ppMy working hypothesis is that Nemtsov was killed by some murderous mavericks, not government agents, nor opposition fanatics. But the reason they felt obliged to go and gun down a frankly past-his-peak anti-government figure is highly likely to be precisely because of the increasingly toxic political climate that clearly is a product of Kremlin agency, in which people like Nemtsov are portrayed as Russophobic minions of the West, enemies of Russia’s people, culture, values and interests. /ppSo, to loop things round, Putin is guilty, I suspect – and all the caveats about the lack of hard evidence yet – the same way that tobacco companies are considered guilty of cancer deaths after they may have known about the risks, or any hate-speaker may be when some unhinged acolytes take their sentiments and decide to turn them into bloody action./pp class="block-time published-time" time datetime="2015-03-01T11:05:29.689Z"11.05am span class="timezone"GMT/span/time /ppstrongAlec Luhn/strong, who is among the many reporters with the march, tweets this photo of another of the marches taking place today, in Ekaterinburg./ppHundreds come out to remember Nemtsov at Yekaterinburg march a href="https://twitter.com/RFERL"@RFERL/a a href="http://t.co/DSMcg5EwVU"pic.twitter.com/DSMcg5EwVU/a/pp class="block-time published-time" time datetime="2015-03-01T11:02:37.709Z"11.02am span class="timezone"GMT/span/time /ppFor some fascinating background, here is a 1997 piece about Nemtsov by the BBC’s Angus Roxburgh, detailing the then-upcoming politician with a reputation for battling corruption and cronyism.

This is incredible, although it’s another mistake from Vincent Kompany at Anfield! The City captain gave the ball away and Sterling seized on it.
