6 leads in Pavel Sheremet’s murder investigations


Investigators are considering six versions behind the murder of Pavel Sheremet, assistant to the SBU chief Yuri Tandzit told the TV channel 112 Ukraine. He mentioned four main versions and added that an operation aimed against the Ukraine's national security could also be the cause of the brutal murder.

There may be other reports ‘aimed at showing that there is no government in Ukraine and that the security agencies cannot control the situation,’ said Tandzir.

Four main versions of the murder were reported earlier: professional activities, hostility and personal reasons, a Russian trace (destabilization of the situation) and an attempt at life of head of Ukrainian Pravda Alena Prytula.
