Georgiy Gongadze was born on May 21, 1969, in Tblisi, Georgia. He was murdered on Sept. 16, 2000, five months after he founded the hard-hitting Ukrainska Pravda news website. His beheaded body was found in a forest outside of Kyiv later that year. He and his wife, Myroslava Gongadze, a journalist with Voice of America in Washington, D.C., had twin daughters.
It took ten years for the prosecutors to conclude that the murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze was ordered by the then Interior Minister Yuriy Kravchenko. But the case should not end there.
