The text of condolences states, in particular:
We express deep condolences to the friends and relatives of a well-known journalist Pavel Sheremet, who died tragically on July 20 in Kiev.
Pavel Sheremet is very well-known in Abkhazia. In 2002, he filmed a documentary about our country, which was appreciated by the Abkhazian audience. The film was shown on the Abkhazian state television and it was widely discussed in society.
After that, Sheremet visited Abkhazia many times. He filmed news reports and wrote articles about our country. He spoke about Abkhazia with objectivity, which is why he was declared persona non grata in Georgia.
Pavel Sheremet had many friends among statesmen, politicians, journalists and ordinary people.
News about the death of Pavel Sheremet deeply saddened all those, who knew him. We once again express deep condolences to the friends and relatives of an outstanding journalist and a great friend of Abkhazia.
