The extradition of Anatoly Shariy to Ukraine — how the case developed
Ukraine in June asked the Spanish authorities to extradite blogger Anatoly Shariy. According to the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, the Ukrainian side sent a request for the transfer of Shariy on May 18, 2022.
Sharia was detained in Spain on May 4 on charges of treason and illegal activities against Ukraine. The police released him on bail.
The blogger said that Fedor Venislavsky, the representative of the President of Ukraine in the Constitutional Court, thought to exchange him and send him to Russia.
Former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Irina Venediktova claimed that the extradition process of Shariy could drag on for 1 year . She explained such a long delay by the actions of his lawyers.
On September 6, the pro-Russian “Party of Sharia” was finally banned in Ukraine. The ban followed the reaction of the SBU to national security threats, a presidential decree and the decision of the National Security and Defense Council.
