Ukrainian journalist Pavlo Sheremet was killed in Kyiv in the morning of July 20, 2016. His car exploded in the city’s downtown. The vehicle belonged to his civilian wife, Editor-in-Chief of Ukrainska Pravda outlet Olena Prytula; she was not in the car at the moment. The Ukrainian police qualified the explosion as intentional homicide. Then Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko assumed the murder could be the part of some ‘greater plan’, perhaps designed by the Kremlin.
