Today, Vygaudas Ušackas, Ambassador of the European Union to the Russian Federation, has made the following statement:

It has been exactly two years since the shock of the brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov, former Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, former Governor of Nizhniy Novgorod, a leader of Russia's liberal opposition and a strong advocate for a modern, prosperous and democratic Russia.

The European Union reiterates the importance of bringing the organisers and perpetrators of that shameful act of violence to justice without further delay.
