KIEV (Sputnik) – The death of well-known journalist Pavel Sheremet, who was working for investigative newspaper Ukrayinska Pravda, in a car explosion in Kiev was not an accident and is linked to his professional activity, the news outlet’s editor-in-chief said Wednesday.
"I think it’s true [that the murder is connected to his work] because Sheremet worked at Radio Vesti every day around this time. This morning he was also driving to work," Sevgil Musayeva-Borovyk said.
She added that Sheremet was involved in projects on developing journalism, for example, holding lectures and workshops for young journalists.
Pavel Sheremet was a prominent, Minsk-born journalist who worked in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Sheremet had worked in Kiev for the last five years.
