KIEV, July 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian investigators are looking into a possibility that head of Ukrainskaya Pravda Alena Pritula was the supposed target of the explosive device that killed journalist Pavel Sheremet, press secretary of Kiev’s Prosecutor’s Office Nadezhda Maksimets said on Wednesday.
"Investigators are looking into these versions as well. It is probably premature to announce main theories," 112 Ukraina TV channel quoted Maksimets as saying.
"We are also trying to determine whether there were any CCTV cameras, any witnesses there," she added.
It was earlier reported that Pavel Sheremet, a renowned journalist, had been killed in downtown Kiev. The automobile that Sheremet was sitting in belonged to Yelena Pritula, head of Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper. However, she was not in the car at the time of the blast. The vehicle blew up at the corner of Bogdan Khmelnitsky and Ivan Franko streets. At this time, Kiev police have preliminarily classified this crime as premeditated murder.
