My name is Diana and in 2020, together with my whole family, we got involved in political life, and since August 10 we participated in all protest actions. This year we had to flee from repression, but as it happened, only I managed to go to Georgia.

We, Natalia and Alexander, have tried to participate in all actions and protests since June 2020, for which we had to endure repression, detentions and political pressure. In order to stay free we decided to leave the country.

Our sixteen-year-old son Nikita Zolotorev has been through all the circles of hell since the 2020 election. Torture and abuse continues to this day, and recently our son was convicted again. We, his parents, are in distress and have little to no help for him.

My name is Jana and I am 26 years old. Since August 2020 I actively participated in peaceful actions, at one of which I was detained and arrested for 10 days. A year later officers of the Main Department for Combating Organized Crime burst into my house and detained me again for 10 days, after which they sentenced me under Article 342 part 1 to 3 years of “chemistry” and sent me to the Penal Enforcement Division.

My name is Yana, I am 30 years old, I have three young children, Anya, Peter and Athena. My husband was detained and sentenced to one year in prison for a comment in a telegram chat room. With all the hardships I am left alone: rental housing, a mortgage on a home under construction, legal fees.

BYSOL fundraising

In Belarus, more than 1000 people ended up in prisons because they did not want to turn the blind eye to the terrible actions of the authorities. Support is needed not only for them but also for their families.

BYSOL is announcing a collection to equip squads of Belarussian volunteers who are fighting alongside Ukrainians against our common enemies, Putin and Lukashenko. Belarusians in territorial defense battalions have received weapons and ammunition, but there is a serious shortage of special equipment, protection and tactical medicine.

Initiatives

From 2015 to the present, the volunteer initiative “gumroute Belarus-ATO” continued to help Ukrainians in the conflict zone. Volunteer medics were supplied with four units of medical vehicles, the total weight of humanitarian aid delivered to the Ukrainian Donbass in five years exceeded 25 tons.

Today, millions of Ukrainians are internally displaced or remain in shelters in places of hostilities, turning to Volunteer Hundred for assistance. Assistance includes food, medicine and hygiene products. We are opening a fundraiser to purchase the most popular items from our recipients' requests.
