Security camera footage showed the car had entered an intersection when an explosion ripped through it from underneath. Passersby ran to pull Sheremet out of the vehicle, which later caught on fire.

Sheremet had been on his way to host his morning radio show. He was driving a Subaru XV belonging to his partner, Olena Prytula, the owner of the news site Ukrainian Pravda, where Sheremet worked.

He was a supporter of the pro-European movement that toppled President Viktor Yanukovych in 2014 and was known for his criticism of the Belarusian and Russian governments.
