[Ed. – Another reminder of why America’s salvation does not lie in an uncritical alliance with Putin’s Russia — for any purpose.]
Pavel Sheremet was killed Wednesday morning in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev when the car he was driving exploded. Ukrainian government officials called the bombing “cynical and well-premeditated murder” and have not ruled out Russian involvement. The bomb was planted underneath the vehicle.
Sheremet was a Belarusian native and spent most of his journalistic career deriding corruption in Belarus and Russia’s Kremlin – causing ire from governments in both countries and resulted in consequences for the pro-Western journalist. …
Sheremet moved to Ukraine several years ago after quitting Russian TV in protest of Putin’s suppression of media.
