Zaur Dadayev sentenced for contract killing of Russian opposition politician, after trial dismissed by Nemtsov’s allies as a cover-up
A man convicted of the murder of the Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov has been sentenced to 20 years in prison, after a trial denounced by the family and allies of the Kremlin critic as a cover-up.
On Thursday, a Russian court gave lengthy jail terms to five Chechen men found guilty of the contract killing of Nemtsov, but his allies say the masterminds behind the crime remain unidentified.
