Hundreds of mourners in Belarus attended the funeral of prominent Belarusian-born journalist Pavel Sheremet, who was killed in a car bombing in Kyiv on July 20.
The funeral was held on July 23 at the Church of All Saints in Sheremet's hometown of Minsk.
Sheremet, a journalist at news website Ukrayinska Pravda, was driving to a radio station to do a morning show when the bomb exploded in his car.
His killing shook Ukraine’s media community and sent shock waves into Russia and Belarus.
The 44-year-old had previously worked in Russia and his native Belarus, where he faced pressure from the authorities for his reporting.
The Ukrainian Interior Ministry said the explosives were “skillfully” planted underneath the car and the blast may have been set off by a “remote-controlled or delayed-action” detonator.
On July 22, thousands of mourners took part in a solemn procession through Kyiv’s Ukrainian House including friends, colleagues, lawmakers, and government officials -- among them President Petro Poroshenko.
