Sharoyko has already returned to Ukraine.
According to the Ombudsman of Ukraine Lyudmyla Denisova, Sharoyko was pardoned after the talks between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
As it was reported earlier, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said he was ready to solve the issue of pardoning of Ukrainian Pavlo Sharoyko accused in Belarus for espionage. According to Lukashenko, there were particular agreements on this issue with ex-president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko; however, the Ukrainian side did not fulfill the agreements.
Pavlo Sharoyko, a reporter for Ukrainian Radio, was detained in Belarus. Belarusian KGB claimed he collected data on Russian military infrastructure in Belarus.
A piece of Sharoyko’s interrogation was published, in which he confessed to having worked for the military intelligence; according to the story, he resigned in 2009, but two years later, he was reinstated as a reserve officer. Later, he started working as a reporter in Belarus, which was a civilian cover.
