At the end of 2021, my life was divided into before and after. One day a search came to my place of residence. I was detained because of my participation in the 2020 protests. I openly expressed my position and attended all of the protests, for which I was severely beaten when detained by GUPOBIC officers.
After sending me to Okrestino, I was charged under Article 342 part 1 of the Criminal Code. In 2022 there was a trial, at which I was sentenced to 3 years of chemo with a referral to the DTC. I filed an appeal, which allowed me to postpone the trial.
Before the Republican Referendum I was again exposed to the criminal regime on a trumped-up case. After the court of appeal in the criminal case, which left the verdict unchanged, I decided to leave Belarus. That's how I was left alone without family and friends, in a foreign country, without language skills and material support.
At this point, unfortunately, I can't ask my relatives for help. During all the legal proceedings we spent a huge amount of money on lawyers. My goal now is to get my life together, get away from the stress and get a job.
I will give half of the money I collected to my family to reimburse the debt I incurred to pay for my attorneys. I would be very grateful to anyone who would help me through this difficult time.
