U.S. Senator Marco Rubio proposed a bill to rename the street, located in front of the Russian Embassy in Washington in honor of slain Russian politician Boris Nemtsov. This is stated in the statement published on the website of the Republican.
“Two years ago, Boris Nemtsov was killed in Moscow on a bridge near the Kremlin, nobody was brought to responsibility,” recalled Rubio.
According to the Senator, the creation of “Boris Nemtsov Plaza” will remind the Russian people that “the voices of the dissidents are still the defenders of liberty will not be silenced”.
