MiR 111 – The Boris Nemtsov Murder

June 29, 2015

Boris Nemtsov


On February 27th 2015, Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was gunned down just a stones throw from the Kremlin. The following interviews were done within days of the murder, but only now did I have the opportunity to put them all together.

Worldwide the crap is hitting the fan so quickly and in such volume, fresh news becomes old news within hours.

I’d like you to listen to a short ABC news sound clip telling what happened to Nemtsov.

I grew up during the cold war and everyone knew what a propaganda machine the soviet union was; including the Soviet people. This hasn’t really changed and in fact is even worse in some respects, but what really disturbs me is how heavily propagandized the American media is.

I mean really, “a sharp chill of fear has ripped across Russia”? what a load of bullshit that was. I’ve been in Russia for about 14 years and I guess I missed the chill of fear as it passed throughout Russia. But then again, it was late February so I may have felt the chill, but missed the fear part.

Let’s talk with some others.



I guess that Lyubov must be a fluke. I mean, the ABC American journalist certainly has his fingers on the pulse of the Russian people, even the sounds effects used seems to prove this. Let me ask someone different.
