More than 20 examinations were carried out within the framework of the pretrial investigation of the murder of journalist Pavel Sheremet. At this stage four basic versions of the motives of the crime are being worked out, Prosecutor General's Office spokesman Andriy Lysenko has said.
"A pretrial investigation is being carried out by an interdepartmental investigative and operational group, which includes members of the National Police and the SBU Security Service. Today, more than 20 different examinations have been conducted, some are still ongoing. Dozens of people were interviewed, the records of CCTV cameras and materials that appeared in the media space were studied," Lysenko said on his Facebook page on Friday, on the second anniversary of the murder.
As earlier reported, well-known Belarusian journalist Pavel Sheremet was killed in the center of Kyiv on July 20, 2016 when his automobile exploded. The car belonged to his companion Olena Prytula, the co-founder of the Kyiv-based Ukrayinska Pravda news website. Police have said the main motive for Sheremet's murder was his journalist activities.
Ukrainian prosecutors have said several individuals are suspects in their investigation. They say the perpetrator did not act alone.
