UKRAINIAN CURRENCY EXCHANGE CHAIRMAN KILLED. Vadym Hetman,
head of the Ukrainian Interbank Currency Exchange, has been
shot dead at his home in Kyiv by an unknown assailant. A
Kyiv Interior Ministry Directorate spokesman told Interfax
on 22 April that the police believe there are three possible
reasons for the murder. Two of those reasons are economic.
The third is political and related to "serious conflict
situations" in the recent elections, in which Hetman made an
unsuccessful bid for a parliamentary seat.
