My story is similar to hundreds of other stories of similar Belarusians. I, too, could not calmly watch what was happening and keep silent. That is why I took an active civic stand and did everything in my power from the very beginning. I always thought that it was not enough and that something else was needed but the IC decided that I had done enough and they came for me. A criminal case under Article 342 of the Criminal Code was opened against me. Then everything was the same as for everyone else: a search with confiscation of equipment, 24 hours, interrogations, and so on. Then I was fired from my job and my family lost their housing. So far I can't tell my story in detail and in all its colors, because now I am in danger. I am facing jail time and need your help. I urgently need financial means to leave the country, as well as some food and lodging for the first time.
I will be grateful for any help you can give me! And remember! We will win anyway!
How much is needed?
2,200 € — 2,000 € to leave the country;
200€ for food and lodging
