Geremeyev was not charged - according to Novaya Gazeta, he left Russia for the UAE as part of a delegation of horse-riders from Chechnya.
In 2017, the perpetrators of the murder - Zaur Dadaev, the brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashev, Temirlan Eskerkhanov and Khamzat Bakhayev - were sentenced to imprisonment for 11 to 20 years in a maximum security penal colony. The investigator believes that the customer of the murder is driver Geremeyev, a former officer of the "North" battalion of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Ruslan Mukhudinov, who paid the executors at least 15 million rubles. He is wanted.
As Novaya Gazeta wrote, Ruslan Geremeyev belongs to an influential clan: he is a relative of Senator Suleiman Geremeyev and the head of the Shelkovsky District Department of Internal Affairs Vakha Geremeyev, as well as Adam Delimkhanov, deputy chairman of the Chechen government. In March 2020, on the anniversary of the murder of Nemtsov, the Kremlin awarded the Order of Merit to the Fatherland Medal of the 2nd degree to the senator of the Chechen government, Suleiman Geremeyev - uncle Ruslan Germeev.
