The 55-year-old former deputy premier who was a vocal critic of Mr Putin, was shot in the back several times shortly before midnight Friday local time as he walked across a bridge a stone’s throw from the Kremlin.
Gorbachev: The murder of Nemtsov could have been a PROVOCATION designed to Destabilize Russia and to heighten confrontation with the West ~ link ~
The assassination of Boris Nemtsov is an attempt to complicate the situation in the country, even to destabilize it by ratcheting up tensions between the government and the opposition.Michael Rivero notes:
Another reason to doubt the “Blame Putin” chorus we are already seeing in the corporate media is the manner in which the shooting took place, in public, in front of the girlfriend, to generate the maximum publicity. If Putin had really wanted to kill this guy, it would have been a “suicide” in private or a small plane crash, the way the US Government handles assassinations.

Never has our nation, corporations and wealthy top 1% faced so many new threats to their efforts to grow their power and wealth around the world. Although there is enough blame and mistakes to go around, many of these threats can not really be blamed on our political or financial leaders but rather result from changes in the fast-paced world we live in today.

IMF bent its own rules to hobble Greece with unsustainable debt ~ link ~
In a 90-minute documentary aired this week on the French-German public television station Arte, an executive director from the international lending agency said that in 2010, when the Greek bailout was initially arranged, the IMF violated its own lending rules, apparently for political reasons.
Brazilian executive director Paulo Nogueira Batista said the agency’s rules were changed in a clandestine manner to allow the IMF to provide its share of bailout funds far beyond the normal limits allowed, and above all to violate the principle not to make any loans that have no chance of being repaid.
