MINSK, July 23. /TASS/. Journalist Pavel Sheremet who was killed in Kiev was buried next to his father in the Belarussian capital Minsk on Saturday.
Rousing tributes were paid to the journalist at a memorial service at the Church of All Saints in Minsk. For four hours, hundreds were coming to the church with flowers to say farewell. Among them were Minsk residents, Belarussian politicians, public personalities, journalists who worked with Sheremet in Belarus. Also, his Ukrainian colleagues and members of parliament attended the ceremony.
Pavel Sheremet died on Wednesday morning on his way to work. A bomb detonated in the car he was driving. Police classified his death as premeditated murder.
Sheremet was born in Minsk on November 28, 1971. In 1998, he took a job as a special correspondent of the Novosti program on Russia’s ORT TV channel and in January 1999 took the post of the managing editor of the Russian and foreign bureau of the TV channel’s information programs. He worked as a presenter in the weekly analytical program Vremya.
Since 2009 he worked as an editor for politics and society in the Ogonyok magazine.
In 2010 Belarus stripped him of Belarussian citizenship, giving as a reason that he had received a Russian passport. For the past five years, Sheremet has lived in Kiev, working in Ukrainskaya Pradva, as well as an anchorman on the Vesti radio.
