The key witness of the murder of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, Anna Duritskaya, is being closely guarded and law enforcers restrict her movements, her lawyer has announced.

"Anna is staying at the home of a supporter of Nemtsov. She is closely guarded and not allowed anywhere," her lawyer Vadim Prokhorov told Interfax on Sunday.

"By now she has given all the necessary witness accounts, we took part in investigative procedures. Therefore already yesterday Anna wrote an official application to the Ukrainian consul asking for help in returning back to Kyiv as soon as possible," the lawyer said.

Prokhorov added that he did not have any new information about the course of the investigation of Nemstov's murder.

Nemtsov was shot dead at about 11:30 p.m. on February 27 in the very heart of Moscow when he was crossing a bridge across the Moskva-river near the Kremlin together with Durtiskaya. The Investigative Committee of Russia is checking various motives behind the politician's murder, including political and domestic.
