The memory of journalist Pavel Sheremet, who died on July 20, 2016, from an explosive device planted under his car, is being honored in the center of Kyiv.

The Ukrainska Pravda reports.

Sheremet's colleagues and friends came to the intersection of Ivana Franka and Bohdana Khmelnytskoho Streets on Tuesday morning, where an explosion occurred exactly 5 years ago at that time.

People brought a poster "Pavel Sheremet's Political Affairs."

For 5 years, the investigation hasn't identified the perpetrators of the journalist's murder. The case of those whom the Ministry of Internal Affairs considers executors is considered by the court. The question "Who killed Pavlo?" remains open.

One of the managers of the Ukrainska Pravda Pavlo Sheremet died in an explosion on the morning of July 20, 2016. An explosive was planted under his car.

On December 12, 2019, law enforcement officials announced they had detained three suspects in the murder: doctor and volunteer Yulia Kuzmenko, musician Andrii Antonenko, and military nurse Yana Duhar.

On May 22, 2020, the investigation into the alleged perpetrators of the murder was completed. The investigation into the clients has been separated into another case and is ongoing. All detainees deny involvement in the crime and consider the persecution political.

On June 19, 2021, the head of the Office of the President, Andrii Yermak, met with Yana Duhar, who is on trial in the Sheremet case.

On July 15, Arsen Avakov was resigned as Interior Minister, and on July 16, new Interior Minister Denis Monastyrskyi said he would assess the quality of the investigation into the murder of journalist Pavel Sheremet following a court ruling.
