President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Pedro Agramunt thinks Sheremet's murder is an attack on media freedom and safety of journalists.
He sends his sympathies to the murdured journalist's family and loved ones.
He says full investigation should be conducted to bring those responsible for the crime to justice.
Journalist Pavlo Sheremet was killed early Wednesday, July 20, in a car explsion in the center of Ukraine's capital city of Kyiv.
Sheremet supported the 2013-2014 pro-Euromaidan protests in Kyiv, publicly condemned the Russian aggression against Ukraine and debunked myths about Ukraine made by Russian propaganda. In April 2014, he took part in the congress 'Ukraine - Russia: Dialogue'.
He maintained friendly relations with Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, who was gunned down on February 27 in 2015, in Moscow's centre, near the Kremlin walls, as he walked home with his girlfriend from a restaurant
