Zhanna Nemtsova

Zhanna Nemtsova is a Russian journalist, social activist, and the daughter of Boris Nemtsov, a leading Russian politician and opposition figure who was assassinated in 2015. Nemtsov was a consistently fierce critic of Putin’s government and his murder has been seen the world over as a clear threat to reformers looking to curb the corruption and rising authoritarianism displayed by the Russian government. Zhanna, who now lives in Germany, has campaigned tirelessly for an investigation into her father’s death. She joined the Russian department of Deutsche Welle in 2015 and has written for a number of international publications on her father’s legacy and Russian politics. In November 2015, Nemtsova founded The Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom, a nonprofit based in Germany dedicated to the promotion of democracy and freedom. She is also the author of “Russland Wachrutteln (Wake Up Russia),” which addresses her father’s reform efforts and legacy. For her efforts, Nemtsova received Poland’s Solidarity Prize in 2015 and an International Women of Courage Award in 2016.
