The Provincial

February 27, 2022
Boris Nemtsov, 1959-2015

Seven years ago today, Boris Nemtsov—one of the most capable, promising, and admired figures of Russia’s struggle for democracy—was murdered on a Moscow bridge. His voice, however, still echoes today: “If power blocks open discussion of the things it is doing, if power is against elections, if power forbids access to information, then it creates the preconditions for corruption and total lawlessness.” (Boris Nemtsov, “The Provincial,” 1997) #нетвойне
