The Head of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Refat Chubarov has expressed his condolences to the relatives and colleagues of the deceased journalist Pavel Sheremet, who was killed in a deliberate car explosion.

“I was not familiar with Pavel Sheremet, but since the 90s, I have had a particular confidence in his journalistic activity. In the past two years, we had a few short meetings sharing our views on the Crimea occupied by Russia. He was a kind, thoughtful and wise companion. People like him have underwent ordeals and feel empathy for others. I express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Pavel Sheremet,” Chubarov wrote on his Facebook page.

Just a reminder: on July 20, at 7.45 am, Pavel Sheremet - working as a journalist in Ukrainska Pravda edition and as a host on Radio.Vesti – was killed in a car explosion at the intersection of Bohdan Khmelnytsky and Ivan Franko Streets in Kyiv.

The car belonged to Olena Prytula, the head of Ukrainska Pravda edition, but she was not inside the vehicle.

According to preliminary version, the explosion was caused by a bomb.
