The murder of Boris Nemtsov has unleashed the predictable barrage of anti-Putin diatribe across all media platforms in the "free world."
When you think about it for more than two seconds, the person who has the least to gain from the murder of Boris Nemtsov would be Vladimir Putin.
It is the anti-Putin opposition, generously financed by the National Endowment for Democracy and other US government run NGO's who gain from this.
This totally plays into the hands of the Putin-haters.
If a pot-addled hillbilly in Bruce County can figure that out, I'm guessing Putin figured it out too.
