"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.
