Experts recall Stambolich and Gongadze, and Kerry said that Nemtsov’s death will affect Russia
Category: Home / Articles
Experts draw parallels between the murder of Nemtsov and similar events in Serbia and in Ukraine, where Ivan Stambolic and George Gongadze took the role of “sacred victims”.
Ivan Stambolic was considered a political opponent of Slobodan Milosevic, but by the time of his death in 2000 he was practically a forgotten figure who did not participate in politics. Western media blamed Milosevic for the death of Stambolic, the murder created an emotional and psychological background for the coup in Belgrade in the fall of 2000. Then the topic was removed from the agenda and almost did not rise.
The murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze was blamed on the president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, whom the Western media and diplomats also proclaimed "president of the country-where-of-the-journalists".
Currently, Gongadze is almost forgotten in Ukraine, giving way to the so-called "Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred".
US Secretary of State John Kerry is shocked and saddened by the news of the murder of Boris Nemtsov. The politician noted that Nemtsov devoted his whole life to the creation of a more democratic, prosperous and open Russia and strong relations between Russia and its neighbors and partners, including the United States, reports Interfax.
"He served his country in many roles - the federal government, the parliament, as governor of Nizhny Novgorod, and also as a political leader and activist. At each post, he sought to reform and open Russia, as well as to give the Russian people an opportunity to have a bigger voice in life of his country, "said John Kerry. He added that Nemtsov’s care "will be deeply felt in Russia and in the world."
“The US urges the Russian authorities to act immediately in order to conduct an investigation and bring the perpetrators to justice,” said John Kerry. “Our thoughts are with the Russian people, the Nemtsov family and his friends.”
