Helping a former policeman from Grodno leave the country

  • Story

My name is Dmitry [name has been changed for security reasons, BYSOL Foundation has all supporting documents]. I am a former militiaman from Grodno.

In the winter of 2021 I was prosecuted under Article 369 of the Criminal Code (insulting a representative of the authorities). They gave me a big fine and sentenced me to 2.5 years of imprisonment.

Despite the fact that I have never complained about my health, I got several chronic diseases in the colony. But the worst thing is that I realize that when I get out of here, I will not be given a quiet life. As one high-ranking official said, people like me “will sit until retirement, and there will always be an article for you”. Because according to the state we are “traitors”.

To save myself, I need to leave. But I have nothing but my homeland. And even that was taken away. I ask Belarusians to help me to settle down in a new country and start everything over again.

How much is needed?

€2100 vision correction surgery. Inexpensive clothes and preparation for the upcoming departure from the country.

The collection is over. Сollected:
€ 915
