After her father was assassinated in February 2015, Nemtsova advocated for a proper investigation. She received threats, and, for her safety, emigrated in June 2015. Following the conviction of five men in connection with her father's assassination, she said “This was not a full-fledged investigation, but an imitation".

In August 2015, Nemtsova began work as a reporter in the Russian department of the German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle in Bonn.

In addition to Russian, she is fluent in English and Portuguese.


On 4 August 2015 Nemtsova received the $1.1 million Solidarity Prize in Poland for advocating democracy and human rights.

She received an International Women of Courage Award in 2016.
