Allies of murdered Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov Tuesday unveiled a report he worked on claiming that hundreds of Russian soldiers have been killed fighting in Ukraine.The report – based on media articles and information from families of Russian soldiers allegedly killed in Ukraine – repeats widespread allegations of Russian military involvement in Ukraine that Moscow has consistently denied.Nemtsov – an ex-deputy premier who became a fierce Kremlin critic – had started work on the report before he was gunned down just yards from the Kremlin in late February.The 64-page report said the Russian army made two major incursions into Ukrainian territory in the summer of 2014 and in the winter of 2015 . Nemtsov's former colleague and friend, ex-prime minister Mikhail Kasyanov, said Nemtsov wanted to compile the report to offer an alternative source of information for Russians who are overwhelmingly dependent on state television.
