Previously, the U.S. Department of State reported that the FBI already assists the Ukrainian side in investigation into the murder of famous journalist Pavlo Sheremet.
The journalist deceased in the car blast in Kyiv on Wednesday morning. The vehicle blew up in the downtown Ukrainian capital at about 7.45 a.m. The car belonged to Olena Prytula, Editor in Chief of the Ukrainska Pravda, famous outlet.
Sheremet was on his way to the studio of Radio Vesti company, where he was supposed to host the radio program.
Pavlo Sheremet, born in Belarus, was the independent reporter, widely famous for his critical stories about corruption in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine; he criticized powerful corrupt officials and disclosed many corruption practices, which could be the reason why he was killed eventually.
