Armenian ruling party condemns Nemtsov murder

The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) strongly condemns the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov. The RPA offers condolences to Nemtsov’s relatives and friends, a statement issued on Monday said.

“We hope Russia’s law enforcement agencies will punish those who committed the crime as quickly as possible and with the utmost strictness of the law,” the party said.

Boris Nemtsov was killed in Moscow late on Friday.

Earlier, Armenia’s leading opposition party, the Armenian National Congress, also strongly condemned the brutal killing of the prominent Russian oppositionist.
