Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin has instructed police authorities to “take all necessary measures” to protect Anna Durytska, a Ukrainian model and Nemtsov’s girlfriend, after she told police that several people were threatening to kill her.

"Currently, security measures are being made to protect the life and health of Anna Durytska," the news agency quoted the prosecutor general’s office as saying. "Attorney General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin has instructed to take all necessary measures to protect the life of Anna Durytska, the witness in the murder case of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov."
