NEW YORK, April 16. /TASS/. An investigation into the murder of Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina should be detailed and unbiased, the deputy director of the Europe and Central Asia Division of the Human Rights Watch, Rachel Denber told TASS on Thursday.
Denber is confident that Oles Buzina levelled sharp criticism at the Ukrainian government.
She urged Kiev to carry out a detailed, independent and unbiased probe into his murder taking into regard that Buzina’s oppositionist views could have been motives.
This murder is a "shocking crime" in the context of another murder committed on Wednesday when Oleg Kalashnikov, a former Ukrainian member of parliament of the Party of Regions (that had supported former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich) was shot dead, too.
Buzina, a well-known Ukrainian journalist, writer and TV presenter, had been shot dead near his home from a dark blue Ford Focus with foreign number plates in the Ukrainian capital Kiev. He was 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 but had to quit his post because of censorship in March this year.
Also, the Committee to Protect Journalists, an international non-governmental organisation, has condemned Buzina’s murder.
