By Polina Devitt and Maxim Rodionov MOSCOW (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Russians marched through central Moscow on Sunday, carrying banners declaring "I am not afraid" and chanting "Russia without Putin" in memory of murdered Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov. Families, the old and young walked slowly, with many holding portraits of the opposition politician and former deputy prime minister who was shot dead while walking home from a nearby restaurant on Friday night. His supporters have blamed the authorities. "If we can stop the campaign of hate that's being directed at the opposition, then we have a chance to change Russia.
