Remembering Boris Nemtsov, anti-Putin politician murdered by the Kremlin
Welcome back to Lucid. Here is the link to register for today’s live Q&A, Friday, Feb. 25, 1-2pmET. If you’re new to Lucid, these are supportive gatherings. Everyone is welcome to ask a question or just listen in. They are not recorded, and your information is not used for any other purpose. I look forward to seeing you soon!
I am also holding a live Q&A on Sunday, Feb. 27, 8-9pmET, only for paying subscribers. I will send that link on Sunday afternoon.
Every Friday I feature a photo, some of them sent to me by Lucid subscribers. Usually these are calming scenes of nature. Today I am doing something different. In honor of the many Russians who are protesting Putin’s aggression against Ukraine, risking imprisonment, I am publishing these photographs of Boris Nemtsov, a physicist and politician (he was Deputy Prime Minister in the late 1990s, under Boris Yeltsin) turned Putin opponent.
Nemtsov led protest rallies against Putin’s fraudulent elections. He also unmasked the Russian President’s corruption, accusing Putin of stealing billions allocated for the Sochi Olympics.
Nemtsov was also one of the few Russian politicians to oppose the 2014 annexation of Crimea. He declared that Putin sought to “dissect” Ukraine. He was murdered in 2015 on the Moskvoretsky Bridge close to the Kremlin.
