Relatives of prominent Putin critic shot outside Kremlin in 2015 say those who ordered killing have not been brought to justice

A Moscow jury has found five men guilty of murdering the Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, following a trial denounced by his family and allies as a cover-up that failed to bring the masterminds of the assassination to justice.

Zaur Dadayev, a former officer in the Sever battalion of security forces in Chechnya, was found guilty on Thursday of shooting the former deputy prime minister six times with a 9mm pistol as he walked near the Kremlin with his girlfriend in February 2015. Four other men were found guilty of involvement in the killing.
