Ukraine's president says Kravchenko's death linked to journalist's killing
Ukraine's President Viktor Yushchenko said Friday that the death of former interior minister could be related to an investigation into the slaying of an investigative journalist five years ago.
Yury Kravchenko, Ukraine's former police chief, was found dead Friday in his summer house just outside Kiev, hours before he was due to meet investigators for questioning about the 2000 killing of Internet journalist Heorhiy Gongadze, who investigated corruption at the highest levels of the Ukrainian government.
