In helping yards, the most important thing for BYSOL has always been and will be safety. For this reason, only 2 people in the fund are working on receiving and verifying applications. We do not require sensitive information from courtyards and verify them through our closed channels. We send funds ONLY through cryptocurrency. Thus, we are confident in the safety of activists who turn to us for help and we know that they will not be compromised.
It has been 2 months since we launched the @dvor_bysol_bot bot to receive applications for assistance to courtyard initiatives. During this time, we accepted 102 applications through the bot, verified and paid 63 of them for a total of € 14,714. We are grateful to the not indifferent Belarusians from all over the world who help the heroic courts to continue their struggle and to express their protest by all means.
However, we recently discovered that someone (probably law enforcement officers) tried to create their own bot in order to collect information about activists. We contacted the support service and the bot was quickly removed, assuring us that no one had time to carry out any communication in it.
For this reason, we want to remind courtyard initiatives that there is only one official bot for getting help: @dvor_bysol_bot and an account for communicating with activists: @bysol_help. These are the only secure methods of communication and we urge you to be vigilant.
Together we will win! Long live Belarus!
