The Shevchenkivsky district court of Kyiv has changed the restrictive measure for person of interest in the case of the murder of journalist Pavlo Sheremet, Yulia Kuzmenko. She is released from the ankle bracelet and put on night house arrest as the court made a proper decision during the meeting.
On August 4, the court changed the restrictive measure for Kuzmenko, releasing her from the 24/7 house arrest to the night one.
At the end of April, the Shevchenkivskyi District Court of Kyiv city released the accused in the case of the murder of journalist Pavlo Sheremet Andriy Antonenko under the round-the-clock home arrest.
Ukrainian journalist Pavlo Sheremet was killed in Kyiv on the morning of July 20, 2016. The car he was driving 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. The key version of Sheremet’s murder was his professional activity.
