The Kremlin critic died three years ago; now his name graces the plaza right in front of the Russian embassy in Washington, DC.

    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.
