Olga Lyekhtona wages a tireless campaign to maintain a makeshift shrine on the bridge in central Moscow where opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was killed in February 2015. City authorities have rejected plans for an official monument on the spot. So for nearly a year, she and other activists have been placing flowers and portraits there -- items which are continually removed. (RFE/RL's Russian Service)
