The National Press Club urged Ukrainian authorities to swiftly solve Wednesday’s murder of a prominent journalist in that country.
Pavel Sheremet, 44, was killed by a car bomb in Kiev as he prepared to head to the Vesti radio station, where he was to have anchored his morning talk show, according to news accounts.
Sheremet also worked for Ukrainska Pravda, the nation’s top online news web site.
A possible motive for his killing was not immediately clear. He had irked authorities in his native Belarus and in Russia before coming to Ukraine in 2014 to work.
