Pavlo Sharoyko has confessed to being a Ukrainian military intelligence officer who was sent to Belarus as a spy, Dzmitry Pabyarzhyn, spokesman for the Committee for State Security (KGB), told reporters in Minsk on November 20.
Mr. Sharoyko, a Minsk-based correspondent of Ukrainske (Ukrainian) Radio, was arrested on October 25 and later charged with espionage.
Mr. Pabyarzhyn said that Mr. Sharoyko was an officer of the Ukrainian defense ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate who had been sent to Belarus under the guise of working as a reporter. Mr. Sharoyko headed the press office of the Main Intelligence Directorate in the past, he added.
While in Belarus, Mr. Sharoyko paid local informers for gathering "intelligence" information relating to the military and political sphere, said the KGB spokesman.
