The murder of Pavlo Sheremet, a renowned journalist working for the Ukrainska Pravda online newspaper, will be thoroughly investigated, Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on the TSN.Tyzhden weekly TV program.


"It was a heavy, well-planned murder, and considerable forces from the National Police are investigating it. All the best forces, and two great teams," Avakov said.

I will confide at this point that I don't want to repeat the case of the murder of Georgy Gongadze, when the investigators constantly reported that they had spent much time questioning, and reviewing much video. I want to have only one message: that the killer is found and the case has been investigated. Unfortunately, the video, which fell into the public network, only harmed the investigation," Avakov added.

As reported earlier, Pavlo Sheremet was killed in a car explosion on July 20. The car, being driven by Sheremet, belonged to Olena Prytula, his common-law wife and the owner of Ukrainska Pravda.

Investigators are considering a key motivation for the murder of renowned journalist Pavlo Sheremet as an act of revenge for his professional activities.
