National Police unveiled new details of the investigation into the case.

Sheremet died on July 20th in a car blast. Having thoroughly studied the recordings made by the neighbouring video surveillance cameras, the investigators found out there have been two people passing the house of Sheremet.

It is them who are supposed to have planted the bomb underneath his car. Recently the police officers have found a new video file allegedly showing a third person to be on the crime scene. He or she must have seen those suspected in the murder.

We call upon the consciousness of this person and ask to call the police hotline or the regular number 102. The evidence the potential witness may provide will be of a great use for the investigation."
