Adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs, MP Anton Gerashchenko has suggested that the female suspect who planted an IED in the car of  SBU Colonel Oleksandr Kharaberyush in Mariupol may be the same one who earlier set a bomb under the car of a journalist Pavel Sheremet in Kyiv, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

The investigation is underway to solve the case of the Col. Kharaberyush's murder, Gerashchenko said.

"We know that there is a very interesting detail: a woman planted a bomb under Kharaberyush's car. She was captured by CCTV cameras. This woman is very similar to the woman who planted a bomb under Sheremet's car," he told journalists.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Kharaberyush was killed in a blast of a car in Mariupol on Friday, March 31. The victim died at the scene. Police qualified the incident a terrorist act.

Pavel Sheremet was blown up in a car downtown Kyiv on the morning of July 20, 2016. Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko called the main version of the journalist's murder a revenge for his professional activities.
