Kommersant, March 2, 2015

"The reaction to the murder of Boris Nemtsov turned out to be as extraordinary as the politician himself," Moscow-based daily Kommersant writes on its front page article, alongside a photo of Nemtsov that was carried at Sunday's memorial march.

Organisers said that up to 70,000 came out Sunday to mourn the opposition leader in the center of Moscow, marching to the bridge near the Kremlin where Nemtsov was gunned down late Friday. 

ABOUT THE SOURCE: Moscow-based Kommersant ("The Businessman") was founded in 1989 as the first business newspaper in the Russia. Originally a weekly, Kommersant is now a daily newspaper with strong political and business coverage.
