Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed on Saturday night in the Greater Moscow River bridge near the Kremlin

The murder of an opposition politician Boris Nemtsov Russian society is divided into supporters of the “theory of provocation”, which told the Russian authorities, and those who believe that a crime in one degree or another is guilty of the current political regime.

Users of social networks during the past days trying to understand what happened, put forward their own versions and just remembered Boris Nemtsov.

“He who rides a white car, and not somewhere else, but almost to the Red Square – to kill a former member of the Russian government, the face of the opposition – a lantern and video cameras near the Kremlin … – and killing is removed on a white car, holding a political demonstration, “- wrote in the” Facebook “political analyst Gleb Pavlovsky.

According to him, the murder – an appeal to the country and the authorities.

“Words are cast into bullets”

Many commentators, refraining from specific charges, see the cause of the death of Boris Nemtsov in the atmosphere that is created in the country of the current government.

“If the federal TV channels continuous river pours raving about the fifth column (which, incidentally, has launched in the course of Putin himself) … if the leader of the opposition at any time to bring to justice or just sit in the bullpen … – it is not very important to Putin personally gave the order … or put someone who believes Putin “wimp”, incapable of decisive action is not … “- says economist Sergei Aleksashenko.

He called the killing of opposition “the harsh truth of today’s Russia”.

“When a society such degree of hatred, ideological war with” liberastov “and could not result in anything else,” – says journalist and TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak.

& # x411; & # x43E; & # x440; & # x438; & # x441; & # X41D; & # x435; & # x43C; & # x446; & # x43E; & # x432; & # X43D; & # x430; & # X43F; & # x440; & # x43E; & # x442; & # x435; & # x441; & # x442; & # x43D; & # x43E; & # x43C; & # X43C; & # x438; & # x442; & # x438; & # x43D; & # x433; & # x435;
Boris Nemtsov was a vocal critic of President Putin and participated in the organization of many protests

The same idea develops journalist Ivan Vlasov: in his opinion, the supporters and opponents of the current government and its policies have a common enemy – the hatred. “If you do not win hatred – perish or friend another, or within yourself or as Nemtsov, really “.

The film critic Anton Dolin said that the death Nemtsov involved everyone who helped turn the word” democracy “and” liberal “in curses.

“The words are cast into bullets, my friends. In Russia, then certainly, “- wrote in the Dales” Facebook “.

” Electroshock opposition “

At the same time a considerable number of commentators hold “theory of provocation”, which, in particular, on the night of the assassination policy spokesman of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov.

Do you know what the worst thing in the murder Nemtsov in Russia? They chose the most moderate and balanced policy oppotsizionnogo.

Eugene Vorobiev, Polish analyst

“They shot Nemtsov. All this looks like a sacred victim near the Kremlin before the march of the opposition. How to Boeing for the next arrival on the EP, “- wrote in the” Twitter “singer Oleg Gazmanov.

” The unfortunate Nemtsov was sacrificed number march “Spring” – right under the date “all neatly.” His body – as electroshock to revitalize the opposition. “To come out”, “to anger”, – says Dmitry Olshansky blogger.

Another blogger Denis Tukmanov calls the incident “murder for export.” As evidence, he cites the crime scene – the center of Moscow – and the very figure Nemtsov, who, in his opinion, is not in itself capable of “placing on the Russian” Maidan “Millions of the crowd.” “But perfectly fit into the news for CNN and the BBC:” The well-known opposition and Putin’s personal enemy shot near the Kremlin “.

” Damn, someone they mean? Whose provocation and against whom ?, – writes journalist Darya Danilova. – Kremlin against the opposition and “Spring”? Yes it will spur even more split, and even more people will bring to the street. Opposition to the Kremlin? This is a series of “Mafia killed her to throw arrows”? Nonsense “.

 & # x426; & # x432; & # x435; & # x442; & # x44B; & # X438; & # X441; & # x432; & # x435; & # x447; & # x438; & # X432; & # X43F; & # x430; & # x43C; & # x44F; & # x442; & # x44C; & # X43E; & # X411; & # x43E; & # x440; & # x438; & # x441; & # x435; & # X41D; & # x435; & # x43C; & # x446; & # x43E; & # x432; & # x435;
Many remember Nemtsov as an honest and charming man

The journalist Maxim Kononenko also doubts this theory: “When the beat Kashin, I called Deme Kudryavtsev – like how I can help – and he told me a wise thing: you do realize that with his manner and the terms of this communication could would be anyone. That’s the same way with Boris Nemtsov. It could be anyone, and the reason could be anything “.

However, he categorically rejected the version of the involvement of the authorities.” I do not remember that power has ever run into Boris Nemtsov. He does not interfere completely “- wrote Kononenko in the” Facebook “.

” The authorities of years left unpunished attacks and threats against Nemtsov, – said in the “Twitter” human rights activist Paul Pins. – It is ammonia and nets created the conditions for a Makarov pistol “.

” It is not in Russia back in the 90s, this world is not returned from the 40s, “- wrote in his microblog Ashot Gabrelyanov.


Foreign journalists and observers also reacted to the death of the Russian opposition.

“You know what the worst thing in the Nemtsov’s murder in Russia? They chose the most moderate and balanced opposition politician “- wrote in the” Twitter “analyst Yevgeny Vorobyov from Poland.

This is a staunch fighter with violence and lawlessness. irreparable loss.

Mikhail Kasyanov, co-chairman of “RPR-Parnassus”

“If you plan to kill someone, you are, of course, choose a place without security and surveillance, such as right next to the Kremlin,” – says the Swedish blogger Anders Östlund.

” until I can prove otherwise, I’m just going to assume that the same ghost super-hired killer removed Nisman and Nemtsov, “- says an American professor Daniel Drezner.

Dutch journalist Olaf Koons recalls:” Boris Nemtsov was a great sense of humor, his laugh every time rolled across his chest. Honest, charming man. That is what they are most afraid of “.

” I – the Germans “

” He was killed by my friend and colleague Boris Nemtsov. This massacre of staunch fighter with lawlessness. Irreparable loss. Grieve. The killer will be found, “reacted to the death of politics, former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov.

Deputy Director of Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in” Facebook “Nemtsov called the killing a tragedy and” challenge for all of us “,” Never knew him, nor when he was in power, or when left in opposition. But today, I – the Germans “.

” It was a noisy, honest, cheerful and sincere. I can not imagine how I wake up tomorrow with the idea that Nemtsov no longer call that here somewhere near him there, “- wrote in the night of the murder journalist Ilya Barabanov.

Twilight of the Gods. As an “Islamic state” destroys the history of mankind – Arguments and Facts


beta version / & laquo; Baikal & raquo;


Guardian Angel could not resist the fanatics


The terrorist group “Islamic State”, whose activities are prohibited in the territory of the Russian Federation, is the systematic destruction of fallen under the control of its monuments of ancient human history.


Guide UNESCO appealed to assemble an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with the situation in a controlled militants “IG” Iraqi city of Mosul.

Manuscripts burn


After the seizure of Mosul in June 2014. militants started destroying everything that does not correspond, in their view, the canons of Islam. Already in the first month of his stay in the city they burned the church of III century. Were blown up and the “wrong” in the interpretation of “IG” mosques, in particular, a medieval mosque of the prophet Dzhirdzhisa (George).


A few days before the destruction of the statues militants blew up a library of Mosul. In the courtyard of the library was constructed a huge fire, which had burned about 10,000 rare books that make up the cultural heritage of Iraq. In addition to the books may have been destroyed, and other valuable items stored in the library of Mosul – in particular, the ancient astrolabe and hourglass.


Some commentators do not exclude that part of the valuable books were not destroyed and stolen to be sold to private collectors – Adventure “IG” do not disdain and similar income. Earlier in the “black market” has already appeared archaeological artifacts stolen from the museum, caught in the territories controlled by the “IG».


UNESCO hopes that the intervention of the UN Security Council, will facilitate the destruction of monuments of the ancient history of mankind.


The path of “Taliban»


The group “Islamic State” is not a pioneer in the field of modern vandalism. In 2001, the movement “Taliban”, controlled at that time most of the territory of Afghanistan, decided to destroy the famous monument of pre-Islamic culture of the country – two rock-cut sculptures of giant Buddha, located in the province of Bamiyan.


The sculptures created in III – V centuries, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are declared by the Taliban pagan idols to be destroyed.


Despite the protests of the international community, in March 2001, was a large-scale operation to destroy the statues. At first, they were subjected to anti-aircraft guns shooting and artillery, which greatly damaged the statue, but not destroyed. Later, the Taliban have placed anti-tank mines on the bottom of the niche so that when the fragments of rock fell from artillery fire, the statue would have received additional destruction of mines. Then, laid explosives into the holes in the statues. The face of one of the statues destroyed the missile strike.


As for Iraq, the historical monuments there are destroying not only the Islamic fundamentalists, but the US Army.


In 2009, UNESCO published a report stating that the ruins of ancient Babylon severely damaged during the war in Iraq. In 2003-2004 Babylon have been used by the US Army and its allies as a military camp for 2,000 people, which caused the monument to the history of a severe and largely irreversible damage.


Returning to the situation in Mosul, we must recognize that the world community has no effective leverage on Islamic fundamentalists, in order to stop the destruction of the cultural heritage of mankind. We can only wait for the release of Mosul and then calculate the amount of damage that can not be measured in money.

How did you come for this project that attracted you to it?

James Marsh: The script was already written – at least its first version when I suddenly doubted my abilities. I know who Stephen Hawking, and was not sure if I could make this film. But when I read into the text suddenly realized that it – not a biopic, but rather an intriguing portrait of Hawking’s first marriage. When I finished reading the script, I realized that the emotional component – the heart of the history of relations between the two people. And the marriage itself, and those who pressured him, and third parties, which they seemed to help a pair of very good intentions – this is the drama. After that I started to work. In the process sucked and actors, and I felt their necessity to elaborate more about the characters.

In what way? Please add the number of scenes?

James Marsh: Not only. When they are in the process of creating the role of fighting for their characters – especially Eddie Redmayne, I had to help them sort out the details and ideas. For example, we were in the script stage, which is not quite true talked about progressive disability. And Eddie told me that he saw a very different behavior when he came to this clinic. As for Felicity (Felicity Jones plays in the film’s first wife Hawking – Note. SA. ) – it could some details to find Jane, and we just had to include them in the architecture of the script.

What was the most important thing for you when you were casting?

James Marsh: When I heard about the film and about the role of Stephen Hawking then immediately wondered who could play her. I figured. it would be nice to find someone in Britain. In the UK, a lot of good actors, but Eddie Redmayne – it was my personal choice. He was the first actor, I “saw” in the role. And during the first meeting, I was convinced that he has the courage and talent to play it. As for Felicity, I knew her previous acting work, and they have always intrigued me. She quickly agreed to cooperate – a bold actress.

What do you mean, speaking of the courage and fortitude Eddie Redmayne?

James Marsh: He knew what was coming, that this role will take months and months rather difficult physical and psychological preparation.

Both – and Eddie, and Felicity – known theater actors.

James Marsh: It was important to me. Eddie Redmayne beautiful theater. His training allows him to play the entire scene without interruption into small pieces. I wanted to get actors who can play an important stage completely and perfectly thus interact with each other – in this respect theatrical context was very helpful and Eddie, and Felicity. And it is good that they had played together in the theater – night after night. This made it possible to achieve the interaction between the characters, to which we have sought in the picture.

Stephen and Jane were present on the set?

James Marsh: They divorced, as you know, so I had to go to them individually. I liked the female point of view, which is strong in itself, and it is important in this story. And then – it’s a memoir Jane. I met with her, and spent some time with Jane in Cambridge, trying to look at all of her eyes. By Stephen Hawking I came much later, asking for blessings to continue work on the film. He gave it to us, but without much enthusiasm. He did not mind, but not the light of joy. There was no such: “It’s great that you’re doing a film about my personal life and my marriage.” But he agreed with the script, and one day decided to come here to shoot at night …

How it was ?

James Marsh: Jane has also been on our site, but at other times. And when Stephen arrived, it was like that, like a spaceship is landing. With him were four or five people, and the lights shone his wheelchair somehow mysterious. It was quite a moment for Eddie. But I feel now that it was a challenge, as a test, after which they both passed. still think that Steven loved being there. When we came to the end of production, were in the process of editing, then showed him the film. It was a very exciting moment. It was difficult to discern whether he likes it or not. But I felt that he had received a his approval. In his own words: “What I saw in your film, it is generally true.” Finally, he offered us a voice in the final part of the film. From this final was even better.

Have you watched the BBC television movie about the life of Stephen Hawking with Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role?

James Marsh: I purposely did not watch it. Decided that for me it will not be useful. Sometimes when you try to create their own interpretation of a story, not in your best interest to see a different view of the same things.
