"Prominent Ukrainian journalist Pavel Sheremet was killed by a car bomb in central Kiev early on Wednesday as he prepared to drive to the local radio station, where he anchored a talk show. An adviser to the Ukrainian interior minister wrote in a Facebook post that an improvised explosive device had been planted on the underside of the car, which belonged to Olena Prytula, Mr. Sheremet's romantic partner and a founding editor of the online news site where he worked. ... The 44-year-old Belarusian-born journalist had been a thorn in the side of authorities in his home country and in Russia for nearly two decades." (07/20/16)
