It was simply a matter of time before Boris Motsov was killed. This brave Russian man has stood for freedom in his native land for over twenty years. He has refused to bow to the threats of President Putin, he has refused to keep quiet as freedom has been slowly and constantly eliminated from his beloved land. Some times Boris simply stood on the streets of Moscow speaking his mind against the kleptocracy of Putin which has resulted in former members of the Soviet Union KGB from robbing the people of Russia. Mr. Motsov was simply walking across a bridge when some gun men blasted away and he is now dead. Oh, there will be a demonstration of sorrow. President Putin will allow this demonstration and smile as people walk peacefully in the streets. He knows that most Russians agree with his policies of defiance and most Russians actually believe that seizing the Crimea somehow makes their lives better.
The sadness of this death is simply the sadness of the people of Russia who have decided that words of anger replace the beauty of freedom. Mr. Mostov was a lonely voice for the right to talk, he is now silent. Alas, so are the Russian people.
