Russian opposition activist Ilya Yashin has said he will publish documents acquired by murdered Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov with evidence that Russian troops are involved in fighting in eastern Ukraine.

Despite Nemtsov’s computers, where the files of evidence had been stored, being seized by investigators after his death, Yashin said that other copies of the information is safe, according to the British newspaper the Times, Ukraine Today reports.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko suggested that Nemtsov's murder was related with his intention to publish a report on Russia’s involvement in the fighting in eastern Ukraine.

Nemtsov was shot four times in the back on February 27 on a bridge near the Kremlin in Moscow. He died at the scene.
