MOSCOW, 4 March. /TASS/. The car sought in connection with the murder of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov belongs to a federal state unitary enterprise (FSUE) providing services to the Finance Ministry, Goznak, the Russian state body that prints banknotes, and other agencies, the Finance Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The Ford car we are talking about does not belong to the Finance Ministry," the ministry’s press service told TASS. "This is a vehicle of an in-house security service, an independent FSUE providing services to the Finance Ministry, Goznak and other bodies."
Russian opposition and state figure, deputy of Yaroslavl regional legislature, Nemtsov, was shot dead on downtown Moscow’s Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge overnight to February 28 from a handgun.
Nemtsov was a co-chair of the RPR-Parnas party. He held a number of government positions in the 1990s.
The Russian police started an investigation into the case, considering several motives that might be behind it.
A number of media outlets reported that the police were looking for the car, which fled the scene and which allegedly belonged to the Russian Finance Ministry.
"At the moment the FSUE car crossed the bridge, a patrol vehicle and police officers were already there," the ministry noted.
