Ruslan Geremeev, one of the defendants in the case on the murder of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov in 2015, may now be in Ukraine.

This is evidenced by a video published on Telegram messaging channel by Chechen leader and Kremlin protégé Ramzan Kadyrov.

The published video shows a man who is very similar to the former officer of the Chechen “North” battalion, Ruslan Geremeev.

Allegedly, he is now in Mariupol, where he leads a group of Kadyrovites – Kadyrov’s military forces.

In a video published by Kadyrov, Geremeev is showing off with other soldiers in front of a building, which, according to him, is the “administration of Mariupol,” although it does not in fact appear to be that building.

Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was assassinated on Feb. 27, 2015 on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge in Moscow.

Five people were arrested on suspicion of the murder, including a former soldier of the Chechen “North” battalion, Zaur Dadayev, the alleged main perpetrator.

Ruslan Geremeev, a former company commander of the “North” battalion, issuspected of helping organize the murder of Nemtsov.

Geremeev was to have been a witness in the case on the murder of Nemtsov. However, he refused to come for interrogation to testify, and went into hiding in Chechnya. He was put on the wanted list, and it was believed that he had left Russia.
