Pavel Sheremet Was Killed In a Car Blast

Pavel Sheremet, 44, a  Belarusian journalist working for a Ukrainian online investigative newspaper  was killed in a car bombing in Kiev on  the morning of July 20.

      The car exploded when Sheremet was driving to work it at 7.45 a.m. in the central part of Kyiv. The car belonged to Olena Prytula, a founding editor of Ukrainska Pravda.

      Two witnesses said they had heard a loud blast and saw an explosion from underneath the car.

      Born in Belarus, Sheremet moved to Ukraine about five years ago, where he hosted a morning radio show for Radio Vesti. He previously worked in Russia as a TV host. He was known widely for this criticism of Belarus' President Alexander Lukashenko.

Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko reported that based on his information Sheremet was killed as result of a bomb explosion. “This is a murder,” Lutsenko said on his Facebook.
