The press service of the Security Service of Ukraine reports about a multilevel special operation as a result of which the "elusive" Tolik Sharia was detained.

As the SBU spokesman Artem Dikhtyarenko said during the briefing, on May 4, 2022, pro-Russian blogger Anatoly Shari was detained in Spain, whom the SBU suspects of treason.

"This became possible due to the close cooperation of the Security Service of Ukraine with the Office of the Prosecutor General, international partners and as a result of a multi-level special operation of Ukrainian law enforcement officers. This detention is another proof that every traitor of Ukraine will sooner or later receive the deserved punishment, it is inevitable, "Dikhtyarenko assured.

We will remind, SBU suspects A. Shariya of commission of the crimes provided by two articles of the Criminal code of Ukraine:

▪️ Art. 111 (Treason)
▪️ Art. 161 (Violation of equality of citizens depending on their race, nationality, religious beliefs, disability and other grounds).

SBU investigators are convinced that Anatoliy Shariy was carrying out illegal activities to the detriment of Ukraine's national security in the information sphere.

"There is reason to believe that Anatoly Shariy acted on behalf of foreign structures. The investigation was confirmed by a number of expert studies, which established that in the interviews and speeches of A. Sharia there are facts of his subversive activities against Ukraine, "the Security Service of Ukraine states.

A pro-Russian blogger has already been declared a suspect last year.
