“Will the court be impartial now?”: the scandalous Ukrainian politician Shariy was arrested in Spain

The SBU was the first to report the arrest of Anatoly Shariy in Spain.


The SBU was the first to report the arrest of Anatoly Shariy in Spain. Ukrainian security officials proudly declared that they had carried out a “multi-level special operation”. Perhaps somewhere it was like that, only the foot patrolmen of the provincial city of Tarragona came to arrest the blogger.

In any case, politics took the truth. kyiv put Shariy on the international wanted list in February 2021. Two articles are sewn on him: treason and violation of equality of citizens. More specifically, the Ukrainians speak of “damage to national security in the information sphere.”

In general, they want to judge the blogger for his opposition activities. In 2012, he left Ukraine speaking about the persecution of the security forces. Lithuania gave him political asylum (this year, however, the politician was deprived of this status).

Shariy has her own YouTube channel with 3 million subscribers. There he does not hesitate to criticize the kyiv authorities. The SBU believes that he is doing it “by order of foreign structures.”

The Spanish security forces took Shariy to the police station, promised in writing not to leave, and let him go home. In addition, the opponent’s fate will be decided by the court, but he is prohibited from leaving the borders of Tarragona. As practice shows, justice often takes several months to discuss a claim from another country.

– It seemed to me that countries extradite only criminals. And here is a typical settling of political scores, I ask Leonid Golovko, head of the department of criminal procedure at the Moscow State University law school.

– Each country has the right to file charges based on its penal code. Both treason and spies are considered criminal offenses, so everything is in order here. Another thing is what decision the court will make. If someone really tried to organize a revolution, overthrow the system, shoot at the barricades, then the composition is the same. If they are persecuted for disagreeing with the authorities, the story is different.

– For example?

– A couple of years ago, the Spanish politician Carles Puigdemont organized a referendum on the independence of Catalonia. Madrid demanded his extradition to Belgium, but it was denied. In Brussels, they decided that this was a purely political hunt.

– I mean, Shariy has nothing to fear?

– I don’t know. Now Europe has a certain ideological position. Will the court now be impartial? – asked the expert.

Meanwhile, in kyiv, without waiting for the Spanish verdict, there is already talk of victory. Zelensky’s office said Shariy would be tried in Ukraine. Perhaps this is the whole special operation – the decision was made in advance at the highest level.
