March in memory of Boris Nemtsov in Moscow was held on 29 February. According to the “White counter”, the rally in Moscow took part more than 20 thousand people, the authorities estimated the number of participants is 8 thousand people. The rally was held without arrests. Without waiting for the journalists of the state TV channels objective coverage of events, the marchers Nemtsov shouted at them “Shame!”. Their fears are once again confirmed.
In several subjects of the Federal TV channels featured the same “sneak peek”, which allegedly is seen as someone on the bus give “protest” poster against the amendments in the constitutionalUW. Male voice-over says, go to this column and return after the March on the bus, going back to Kaluga.
the shooting, however, nothing but the interior of the bus, men’s feet and one poster, not actually seen. But on the First channel and “Russia 24” frames felt strong enough to declare that the March people were brought by buses.
Participants Federal media have decided to blame and that they “threatened the police.” As evidence used a video in which people go and hear the phrase over: “Today a drink, tomorrow or the bullet”. From what context the phrase is ripped out, who says it and to whom – is unclear. But we know that something similar was said in December, President Vladimir Putin at a meeting of the Council for human rights. “He threw a plastic Cup – nothing, then a plastic bottle – again nothing, then throw a glass bottle, and then the stone, and then start to shoot and to smash shops. We should not allow this. All have the right to Express their point of view and to Express their position in all possible and affordable, but legitimate. That was the case,” – said in a didactic tone, the head of state, commenting on the “Moscow business”.
in addition, on the Federal channels was that the marchers Nemtsov defended “suspected of murder and drug trafficking,” alluding to the rumours, the common “jellyfish” for some defendants in the case “Network”*. About the criminal case that caused a wide public resonance, the TV was silent.
