The prominent Ukrainian dissident died in traffic accident

At a ceremony to open a monument to the prominent Ukrainian dissident, Vyacheslav Chornovil, Victor Yushchenko has said his murder should be fully investigated, according to the President’s press-office. 

“We are now returning to this issue again in the form of my order as Ukraine’s president. I am convinced we must reach absolutely new conclusions, considering all the materials the Prosecutor General’s office and other law enforcement agencies have collected,” he said, adding these conclusions, which should not be "too hasty," can eventually prove “the death of Chornovil was not an ordinary routine story.”

“I just want to say that the investigation of this murder is the matter of dignity and professional commitment of Ukraine’s government and law enforcement agencies,” he said.
