Russia's opposition supporters carry portraits of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov during a march in central Moscow on March 1, 2015US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday urged Russia to carry out a "thorough, transparent, real investigation" into the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, a fierce critic of President Vladimir Putin. "The bottom line is that we hope there will be a thorough, transparent, real investigation not just who actually fired the shots, but who if anyone may have ordered or instructed this or been behind this," said Kerry, speaking to ABC television's "This Week" program. Another leading figure in US politics, US Senator Dianne Feinstein, a former chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, went so far as to implicate Putin in Nemtsov's death. "Whether Putin authorized it, whether he didn't, whether he knew about it, whether it was his friends or some of his military doing this, we'll wait and see with the investigation," she said on the "Face the Nation" television program.
