Moscow Authorities Approve Nemtsov Memorial March

Moskva News Agency

A memorial march for murdered politician Boris Nemtsov has been approved by the Moscow authorities, one of the organizers has said.

The march has been held annually since Nemtsov was shot in the back meters away from the Kremlin in February 2015.

The march will be held Feb. 25, beginning at Strastnoi Bulvar and ending on Sakharov Prospekt, opposition politician Ilya Yashin said on Twitter.

Organizers are expecting some 30,000 people to attend, Yashin told the Vedomosti business daily.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
