We are deeply concerned by the appalling murder of Boris Nemtsov, who stood for democracy, rule of law, freedom of expression, and a state accountable to the people. Sir John Major attended the memorial in Moscow on 3 March on behalf of the Government. We call upon the Russian authorities to ensure that the investigation into the murder is transparent, impartial, and evidence-based, and that those responsible are brought to justice in line with the rule of law.
