President Petro Poroshenko said that FBI will get involved in the investigation. About 400-600 grams of TNT were used for the explosive device that killed Sheremet. “This is carnage against Ukrainska Pravda investigations that indeed had replaced the prosecutor’s office investigations in the last 10 years,” Poroshenko Bloc’s lawmaker Svitlana Zalishchuk said. President Petro Poroshenko ordered to provide bodyguards to Olena Prytula, the wife of Pavlo Sheremet and the founding editor of Ukrainska Pravda.
“I will personally take charge of the case,” The head of Ukraine’s national police force Khatia Dekanoidze said.”We respect him as a fearless practitioner and supporter of freedom of speech, the Revolution of Dignity, and a brighter future for Ukraine,” the US Embassy said. Taras Berezovets, an Ukrainian political expert, writes on Facebook: “Pavel Sheremet’s assassination is an attempt to scare the society. The authors of this crime had a cynical intention to spread panic and distrust.
