    People gathered on the anniversary of the death of Boris Nemtsov, the leader of the opposition in St. Petersburg, Russia. Nemtsov, a charismatic leader of the Russian opposition and a keen critic of President Putin, was shot dead near the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, on February 27, 2015.

Moscow >> Today, thousands of people flock to a bridge in Moscow overlooking the Kremlin.

Nemtsov, 55, a former deputy prime minister, was shot to death while walking along the Bolshoi Moskvoretsky bridge late at night on February 27, 2015.

Participating in the Saturday commemoration was Yulia Navalnaya, the wife of imprisoned Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalnaya.

Navalny was detained in January after returning to Moscow after recuperating for five months in Germany due to nerve agent poisoning, sparking a nationwide wave of protests.

Nemtsov is one of Russia’s most energetic and charming opposition figures, and his death has dealt a heavy blow to President Putin’s political opponents.

An official of the security forces of the leader supported by the Chechen Kremlin was sentenced to 20 years in prison for shooting and killing Nemtsov. The other four men were sentenced to 11 to 19 years in prison on suspicion.
