KIEV, April 16 /TASS/. Well-known Ukrainian journalist and writer Oles Buzina was killed near his home in Kiev at midday on Thursday, ambulance doctors told TASS.
Ukraine’s Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko confirmed Buzina’s murder. He wrote on his page in Facebook that Buzina had been shot dead from a dark blue Ford Focus with foreign number plates.
Oles Buzina was a well-known Ukrainian journalist, writer and TV presenter. He is the author of two books, including "Vampire Taras Shevchenko" and "The Union of Plough and Trident". Buzina used to be the editor-in-chief of the Segodnya newspaper who had to quit his post because of censorship in March this year.
Russian TV anchorman Vladimir Solovyov told TASS he thinks the murder of Ukrainian journalist and writer Oles Buzina is a classical Bandera-style assassination.
"Oles was a patriot of Ukraine but he also loved Russia. He had his own voice, which was listened and heard by many people. This crime is a politically-motivated classical Bandera-style assassination," Solovyov said adding the task of investigators who were currently working at the scene was to conceal the traces of the crime.
Terrorist attacks with an aim to murder public figures and politicians who were unsuitable to Ukrainian nationalists and the Banderist underground used to be classified as assassinations in Ukraine in the middle of the 20th century.
Buzina took part in Solovyov’s talk shows on the Rossiya 1 TV channel many times. "He was present at my talk show quite recently. I kept offering him to come to work in Moscow. I used to tell him that it was dangerous for him to stay [in Ukraine] but he replied that his home was there," Solovyov concluded.
