UN monitoring mission calls to bring to account those who are responsible for murder of the journalist Vadym Komarov, as it is said on the institution’s Facebook page. “The investigative journalist from Cherkasy, Vadym Komarov, passed away last night, after a brutal attack in May. Sincere condolences to the family. It is the 3rd death of a journalist in Ukraine since 2014. Impunity must stop now! Perpetrators must be held accountable”. IMI informed today, Vadym Komarov, Cherkassy investigative journalist, victim of brutal assault who stayed in coma, died on June 20th. As IMI informed, on May 4th in Cherkassy, some unknown person beat Vadym Komarov, local journalist and video blogger, who investigated facts of corruption in municipal council, illegal real estate development and condition of penitentiary establishment. Komarov was sent to the hospital, he was in a critical condition, as he got an open cranio-cerebral trauma. The police initially instituted a criminal case under part 1 of article 121 (“Intentional grave bodily harm”) of the Criminal Code. But then, the investigators re-qualified the criminal proceedings under articles 15 and 115 of the Criminal Code (“Murderous attempt”).
