Unfortunately, it seems that the President personally will determine the fortune of Boris Nemtsovs murder investigation rather than the Investigation Committee and Federal Security Service. Because this decision will not only determine the configuration of the accused on the dock, but also the political configuration of the country appeared to be on the brink of war between the regime backbones. There must be determined who is a patriot and who is not. And it seems we will find out soon what is a way out of this dead end where the President has been brought by force so cynically
"We were told that we were going to have maneuvers, but we knew where we went. I was morally and mentally ready to go to Ukraine. We painted over the tanks in Ulan-Ude. Just while they were in the train set. We painted over the plates. Some tanks were marked with the guard sign — we painted them over, too. We took off the arm patches and chevrons here, when we arrived at the training range. Take off everything for conspiracy reasons.

But today we do it because these tragic days it sounds like a will. — Well, I have made no decisions for myself. Many have left. Guriyev left, Kasparov left, Rybachenko left, Suren Gazaryan left, another dozen of people left. I'm just going to work in the Yaroslavl oblast Duma, I am still its member — just in case. You must understand that they will not make me silent in such a way, simply will not be able. Listen, I've spent all my life doing it, and now all of a sudden I must be silent? It does not happen like this. With me, at least. But I must take into consideration that they can do anything
Novaya Gazeta publishes a plan of alienating a range of Ukraines territories by Russia, which was drawn up at the time when Yanukovich was still the President of the country.
The document we publish is interesting by the fact that, at the early stages of the Ukrainian political crisis – i.e. before Yanukovich escaped from Kiev and Banderist junta came to power, it spells out in detail the justification as well as the political and PR logistics of Russias intervention in Ukraines affairs
