On August 11, 1997, Boris Derevyanko, who had been the editor of Vechernyaya Odessa for 24 years, was shot and killed on a city street in broad daylight on his way to work. He was 59 years old. International news organizations and the regional prosecutor concluded that Derevyanko was assassinated because of his editorial work, as a known critic of local post-communist politicians.
