According to Ekho Moskvy, two men from the Northern Caucasus are suspected of being the hitmen in the murder of Boris Nemtsov and have been detained. The radio station cites an identified source saying the killers’ “biological material” has been found in “the car” (presumably the abandoned car found near Ordynka) and that data from mobile operators and street cameras have helped track them down.
Which does not mean much to me, except that for the time being, the Islamic/North-Caucasian connection is emerging at the number one hypothesis for public consumption. With near-zero verifiable information on the two men’s alleged involvement, they might as well be randomly selected individuals of North Caucasian heritage.
