Earlier reports said that Belarusian citizen Vitaly Shishov, who went missing on Monday, August 2, had been found hanged in a Kyiv park.

Police launched a criminal case under Article 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (premeditated murder) and will investigate all theories, including the theory that it was the killing disguised as suicide.

The Belarusian House in Ukraine said the head of the organization, Vitaly Shishov, had been under surveillance.

The Belarusian House in Ukraine reported on social media that Shishov moved to Ukraine in the autumn of 2020 after participating in protests in Gomel.
