Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson says Canada stands with the 30,000 Russians who took to Moscow streets on Sunday to protest the killing of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov. Nicholson says he doesn't know who is to blame for Friday's shooting of Nemtsov, one of the most vocal political opponents of President Vladimir Putin. But he says Sunday's protest march and outpouring of support for Nemtsov shows Russians are concerned about what Putin is doing to their country. (Nicholson arrives in Paris on Monday for talks with his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius, on his first foreign trip in his new portfolio.)
