In Kyiv, the action takes place on the eve of the third anniversary of the assassination of journalist of the Ukrainska Pravda, Pavlo Sheremet, “Who killed Pavel? Three years without answer.”
The event takes place at the crossroads of Ivan Franko and Bohdan Khmelnytsky Streets, where on July 20, 2016, a car of Sheremet was blown up.
The participants in the action say that the investigation into his murder moves very slowly.
The US Embassy in Ukraine called on the Ukrainian authorities to “show commitment to freedom of the press and bring to justice the perpetrators of the death of Pavlo Sheremet.”
“Independent media play an important role in Ukrainian democracy,” the embassy stressed.
