Washington DC Council Bill a New Way of Insulting Russia

In 1985, Congress named the area of 16th Street in the nation's capital in front of Soviet Russia's embassy Andrei Sakharov Plaza, the country's best-known dissident at the time.
A city council bill proposes renaming it after slain Putin antagonist/Western darling Boris Nemtsov – another insult against country if done. They occur with disturbing regularity.
Nemtsov was falsely called "Mr. anti-corruption" when alive. He was no paragon of virtue, involved in various predatory/illegal schemes.

Nemtsov ignored US responsibility for the coup replacing democracy in Ukraine with fascist despotism. He lied calling Donbass "Vladimir Putin's war."
