Ukrainian authorities consider "Russian trail" in Sheremet's murder
"We’re considering the so-called geopolitical version, which means there could be a Russian trail. There’s a certain question: why the Channel 17 representatives were the first to reach the crime scene? Did they know anything in advance? Were they aware of what could happen? That surely can’t be left out of sight of investigators," Ivan Varchenko, Interior Minister Counselor said in the interview with Hromadske.TV.
