The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is concerned about the lack of progress in investigating the murder of journalist Pavlo Sheremet.

Fiona Frazer, Head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, stated this at the presentation of an OHCHR report on the human rights situation in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

She said that of concern was the weakening of the protection of the freedom of expression in the media. "A year after the killing of journalist Pavlo Sheremet on July 20, 2016, little progress was observed in the investigation into this case," Frazer said.

She added that foreign journalists were expelled from Ukraine more often, "allegedly for the so-called anti-Ukrainian propaganda."

Sheremet was killed in a car explosion in the center of Kyiv on July 20, 2016. Law enforcers have not yet managed to identify those who ordered and those who executed the killing of the journalist.
