On the night of June 20, a journalist Vadym Komarov from Cherkasy, who was beaten on May 4, died, as the Head of National Journalist Union of Ukraine Sergiy Tomilenko reported on Facebook.

“Since attack Vadym was unconscious, he was in coma. The only version of an assassination attempt, and now murder, which Cherkasy journalists believe in, is a professional activity of Vadym Komarov. He was uncomfortable for many politicians. He asked awkward questions about corruption in Cherkasy, he raised resonance topics,” Tomilenko wrote.
