Day 6

From the archive: Boris Nemtsov on the risks of opposing Putin

In February 2012 Day 6 guest host Peter Armstrong spoke with Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was killed in Moscow on Friday.

"If you are in the opposition to Putin you have to take into account risks."

That's what Boris Nemtsov told Day 6 guest host Peter Armstrong back in February 2012. The risk he was talking about was a return to prison. Today Nemtsov is dead, gunned down in the Moscow streets on Friday. In this interview he talks about the long term prospects of anti-Putin protest in Russia.
