Letter: Lucky to have freedom of speech

A sad article about Boris Nemtsov, who was critical of Vladimir Putin’s mad and aggressive policies and hoping to say a word about the Ukraine predicament. An amazing political advocate. That Natalya Estermiro, Alexander Litvento, Stanislav Markelov and Anna Politskaya preceded him, probably in government-orchestrated deaths, is a very sad thought. We are fortunate to speak our piece here without the thought of retribution. Or let’s hope.
