Killing Pavel

Killing Pavel, a documentary that reveals new details about the killing of journalist Pavel Sheremet in Ukraine last year, is now available on the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) YouTube channel in Ukrainian, Russian and English. The 44-year-old was killed by a car bomb in the Ukrainian capital in July 2016. For over nine months, reporters at OCCRP and its Ukrainian partner Slidstvo.info conducted their own investigation, both into the murder and into the unsuccessful police probe.
