Rubio introduced the draft resolution on renaming the square in front of the Russian Embassy in Washington to “Boris Nemtsov Plaza” (Boris Nemtsov Plaza) in memory of politics-the opposition leader, who was killed two years ago in Moscow.

“Creation “Boris Nemtsov Plaza” will be a constant reminder to the Putin regime and the Russian people that the voices of dissent will to live and the freedom not to silence, — said in a statement Marco Rubio, published in the second anniversary of the death of Boris Nemtsov. — Whether a street sign or thousands of letters at “Boris Nemtsov Plaza, building 1″, it will give a comprehensive signal to the Kremlin that the intimidation and murder of opposition will not go unnoticed”.

“This initiative is a precedent: in 1984, the same Senate resolution renamed the square in front of the then USSR Embassy in Washington (now the residence of the Russian Ambassador) to the square of Andrei Sakharov, writes Kara-Murza. — Needless to say that the Soviet foreign Ministry was furious. But in the early ’90s, the authorities of new Russia have established a bust of Sakharov in the Embassy building”.

U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft visited the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky bridge, which was killed Boris Nemtsov to honor the policy, and the US state Department on Monday issued a special statement.
