Renowned Russian democracy activist Boris Nemtsov was murdered outside the Kremlin in 2015. His killers were never found. Now Zhanna Nemtsova, his daughter, continues his legacy by advocating for a liberal democratic Russia. Dedicating her speech to her father and to all of those prosecuted for political dissent in Putin’s Russia, Zhanna asks the world to support Russian activists in their work for a free Russia.
