Ukraine: 'Who killed Pavel?' - scores mark Sheremet's murder with call to find killer

Ukraine, Kiev
July 20, 2017 at 10:43 GMT -00:00 · Published

"We want to say that if not with this president, if not with this head of the national police, if not with this minister of internal affairs, but sooner or later the killers, the perpetrators of this terrible crime against journalism, against humanity, against our colleague, against journalists of the 'Ukrainskaya Pravda' - they will be found. And with this march we want to show that we haven't forgotten and that we remember."

Scores marched through the streets of Kiev, Thursday, to mark the one-year anniversary of the murder of the prominent journalist and political analyst Pavel Sheremet.

The participants gathered at the crossroads of Ivan Franko and Bogdan Khmelnitsky streets, in downtown Kiev, where the journalist was murdered. Banners reading "Who killed Pavel?" filled the streets, as demonstators demanded those responsible to be found and brought to justice.

Sevgil Musaeva-Borovik, the editor-in-chief of the online newspaper "Ukrainskaya Pravda" where Sheremet worked, spoke to the media ahead of the march. "We haven't forgotten," she said, adding "We want to say that if not with this president, if not with this head of the national police, if not with this minister of internal affairs, but sooner or later the killers, the perpetrators of this terrible crime against journalism, against humanity, against our colleague..."

Demonstrators then marched on the presidential administration in Maidan Square where they lit candles and spray-painted stencils outside the entrance.

The renowned journalist and political analyst Pavel Sheremet was killed in a car bomb blast in Kiev on 20 July 2016. He worked for the online investigative newspaper Ukrainskaya Pravda and was travelling to work when an explosion ripped through the vehicle in downtown Kiev.

Ukrainian President Poroshenko launched an investigation into his death and has asked for assistance from the FBI. To this day no one has been arrested or prosecuted.
