St. Petersburg's political activists and deputies paid tribute to the murdered opposition politician Boris Nemtsov at the commemorative rally in front of St.Petersburg-Finlyandsky railway station on Sunday.

St. Petersburg's Legislative Assembly deputy Maxim Reznik addressed to the crowd, saying that Nemtsov was "a lively person" and "a tough polemicist". "I want you to keep that what has been voiced here today more than once always in memory. Boris contributed a lot to unite people rather than to separate," added Reznik.

Earlier on Sunday thousands marched along the Moscow streets in memory of Nemtsov holding banners with slogans and Nemtsov's photographs. The commemorative march started in central Moscow and ended with a flower-laying ceremony at the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge.

On February 27, 2015 former Russian Deputy-Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov was shot down in the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge just south of Red Square.

The murder site later became a makeshift memorial.
