    As investigations continue into what role Russia has played in US domestic politics, it's safe to say that many politicians are not fans.

    Some members of congress have sent a barbed message to Moscow by installing a new street sign in Washington, DC, right in front of the Russian embassy.

    It commemorates Boris Nemstov, a Kremlin critic who was murdered three years ago.

    Many see this move as a message to Russia that the world is watching.
