Shariy announced his departure from Ukraine in 2012. Then he told Ukrayinska Pravda that because of the “persecution” on the part of law enforcement and hooliganism decided to seek political asylum in the Netherlands, but due to the fact that he had a Lithuanian visa, the Dutch authorities sent him to Lithuania. There he received refugee status, but he was deprived of it in 2021 and recognized as an “undesirable person,” Delfi wrote. He appealed this decision, but in 2022 the Lithuanian court made a final decision to deprive him of his refugee status.
