On 20 July 2016 Belarusian investigative journalist Pavel Sheremet died in a car explosion in Kyiv, Ukraine. He was a critic of authoritarian presidencies in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. The case is still unsolved, although the Ukraine Prosecutor's Office labelled the death a 'murder'. For over nine months, reporters from OCCRP and Slidstvo.Info conducted their own investigation, both into the murder and into the police probe – and recorded every step of the way. “Killing Pavel” is the result of these efforts
"Killing Pavel" was first shown in Italy on the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day 2018 (May 3rd). OBCT made Italian subtitles that are available by request.
