"Russia must be finally freed from tragedies like the one we have just seen and experienced, i.e. the brazen murder of Boris Nemtsov right in the center of the capital city," Putin said at a meeting of the Interior Ministry Board.

"First and foremost, it is necessary to improve the resolution of crimes, both recent and those committed in the previous years. We really need a breakthrough, a new quality of work of the Interior Ministry and the entire law enforcement system. We should pay close attention to high-profile crimes, including those politically motivated," Putin said.
