Helping the founder of a VK protest group relocate from Belarus

  • Story

In the fall of 2022, I was detained by police officers. I was beaten, my phone was taken away and later seized as a means of crime. I had a group on VKontakte, where I covered the news feed, wrote about the current government and the situation in the country under the repressive regime. Sometimes I took material from NEXTA. 

In the end I was sentenced to 15 days in Kastrychnitski District Court under Article 19.11. I applied to the ambassador in Minsk for a humanitarian visa. I wanted to move to another country for permanent residence. 

Now I have no money for traveling, insurance and renting a house for the first time, I don't even have a passport. I need to get one and then move to Poland. I would like to ask for support from concerned people, I will be glad to get any help, even with accommodation in the beginning. 

How much is needed?

2200 € — issuing a visa; buying a ticket; renting an apartment (for the first time); insurance.

€ 152 in 2 200
