In this photo taken on Aug. 28, 2012, Anna Duritskaya poses for a photo for a modeling portfolio in Kiev, Ukraine. 23 year old, Duritskaya was the one witness of the killing of Boris Nemtsov, a fierce critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin who was gunned down not far from the Kremlin, she has been in police custody for questioning since Friday night, but in an interview with TV channel Dozhd on Monday said that she had not seen Nemtsov’s attacker. “I didn’t see anything,” she told Russia’s independent TV channel Dozhd. “I turned around and all I saw was a light-colored car. I saw neither the brand, nor the license plate of the car when it was driving away.” Duritskaya said that she had known Nemtsov for three years. She said that she wanted to leave the country and that she had been questioned exhaustively, but that Russian investigators would not allow her to leave.
