A Russian newspaper published traffic camera photos of the alleged assassins in the ZAZ Chance already back in September, well before the Charlie Hebdo killings.
Moskovsky Komsomolets published (already on March 10) traffic photos of the getaway car, some in the vicinity of Nemtsov’s apartment. The image of the chief assassin, Zaur Dadaev, appears visible on the left passenger side. The photos date to September. I quote from the article (for photos of the car, see below):
“What is this – a coincidence? If we allow that the suspects already were following the politician (Nemtsov), the fundamental motive disappears. At that time, there had been no shooting in the offices of Charlie Hebdo; there were no remarks by Nemtsov, which would have incited Muslims. That means there was nothing to kill him for – at least according to the logic of Zaur Dadaev. We should also notice the carelessness of the gangsters. They did not once bother to pay parking fees. This infraction plus frequent speeding tickets – on the car added up to 12,000 rubles. Who is going to pay? So far, we do not know.
