Late at night on May 8, 2000 the prominent Lviv composer and singer two young men heavily beat Ihor Bilozir. The badly wounded 40 years-old composer has died in one of Lviv hospitals in half a month after the accident. This murder gave a ground for various insinuations on the international scale and political speculations in pre-election period in Lviv. A human tragedy and the loss of the most talented composers (after Volodymyr Ivasyuk) was transformed to the political show. This death has shown among the rest that the actual situation in the country and particularly in the services responsible for public security, the gangsters are in the most safety position and could act without threats to be punished. Especially those, whose parents occupy the leading positions in authority structures.

Even arrests of Dmitrij Voronov and Yurij Kalinin that are suspected to commit this crime gives no guarantee for quick and successful trial and adequate punishment in case of proved guilt.
