Five suspects in the 2015 murder of prominent Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov are on trial in a Russian military court. The five men, all Chechens, faced the jury on Monday in Moscow and pleaded not guilty. Nemtsov's supporters and family members say his murder was masterminded by high-ranking politicians and fear that the real culprits will never be found. Zlatica Hoke asked a Russia expert to throw some light on the case.
