"The grainy video, recorded from the other side of the Moskva River, contradicts earlier reports that Mr Nemtsov was killed by assailants shooting from a vehicle that slowed down when passing him and his girlfriend, Anna Duritskaya, as they walked home.
Instead, the assassin apparently hid in a stairwell leading off down from a bridge. As Mr Nemtsov passed, the killer emerged and began shooting at Mr Nemtsov’s back, killing him with four pistol rounds. He then hurriedly climbs into an arriving getaway car, and is driven away.
The new details confirm the high levels of preparation required for the attack, which both Russian investigators and President Vladimir Putin have said has all the hallmarks of a contract killing. Opposition politicians claim it may have been the work of the Kremlin, of which Mr Nemtsov was a prominent critic.
“You would have needed to coordinate very closely between Nemtsov and the car… It is clear that it was a very sophisticated and professional killing,” according to security expert Andrei Soldatov. Up to 15 people working in three teams could have been involved, he said." Telegraph

Surely Putin is not this dumb. Why on earth would he have this gadfly killed on a busy Moscow street when it would have been obvious that he (Putin) would be the popular suspect?
