Almost a year has gone by since Belarussian journalist Pavel Sheremet was killed by a car bomb attack in the center of Kyiv during morning rush hour on a bright July day. The police investigation into his murder has come up with practically nothing.
The only finding of the official investigation into Sheremet’s assassination is that it is connected to his activities as a journalist. That’s hardly a revelation, given that many journalists have been killed in Ukraine since 1991 for doing their jobs.
Journalists have made more progress than police in their own, independent investigation of the crime.
