In February 2015 Russian politician Boris Nemtsov — a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin — was shot dead on a bridge in the shadow of the Kremlin. Five men were convicted for his murder, but urgent questions remained: Who ordered the killing…and why?
Now, a new film from Bellingcat, The Insider, and BBC Eye reveals evidence that, in the year running up to the shooting, Boris Nemtsov was being shadowed by an FSB agent linked to a secret assassination squad.
