Perebiynis also said that five years ago he as a representative of the foreign Ministry was one of the first in Ukraine to react to the killing near the Kremlin Boris Nemtsov.
“Just a few minutes after this tragedy, I tweeted that it was one of the few Russian politicians who is not afraid to speak the truth. I mean, first of all, the truth about the Russian occupation of Crimea and the war launched by Russia against Ukraine. It is no secret that the opposition of the majority of Russian opposition ends where they begin to ask questions about Ukraine. Boris Nemtsov was different,” said the Ukrainian Ambassador.
