The killers fired a Kalashnikov assault rifle, Censor.NET reports citing Pro Vse online medium.
Police and prosecutors are conducting investigative activities.
Binusov was recently appointed head of the housing department of Cherkasy mayor's office.
"He was tasked with fighting corruption in the department. All flows have been stopped. He left the show [at Ros TV channel - ed.]. At 10 p.m. I talked on the phone with him," Cherkasy mayor Anatolii Bondarenko said on the site of the murder.
The murder occurred near a garage complex. Binusov wanted to leave his car and get in the car of his acquaintances. They awaited for him near the garages - their car has been damaged by the shots and they are being interviewed as witnesses, says Zoia Vovk, press officer of Cherkasy police.
Police said the shot sounded like as if made from an assault rifle.
