Some 20,000 people marched in Moscow on Saturday to honour the memory of key opposition figure Boris Nemtsov who was assassinated a year ago.
He was shot four times in the back – next to the walls of the Kremlin.
People carried placards that read ‘I am not scared’ and burst into chants criticising the Russian government.
It’s a rare show of confidence from an opposition that’s been cowed by those in power.
