Help for Gritzok family where son was sentenced to 3 years of home “chemo”

  • Story

Five years ago my husband tragically died and I was left alone with two children. My son was a student at the time and my daughter went to school. My son was my support and encouragement in everything.

After he finished his studies he immediately went to work in Russia, so it would be easier for us to live. He helped me financially, as my salary is minimal. While still in Belarus my son was engaged in sports (boxing). After a few years in Russia my son was enrolled in the St. Petersburg Boxing Federation. 

There were great achievements, but everything collapsed in one second. They came to our house at night, handcuffed my son and took him away without any explanation. He spent 15 days in Okrestino, then was transferred to a pre-trial detention center in Volodarka. On 26 October he was found guilty under Article 342.1, leading to a sentence of three years in home “chemistry.

All the organizations in our small town refused to hire him for political reasons. They say bluntly: "You are a traitor to the motherland, we don't need such people. Now we live on my salary of 450 rubles. In this period we also need to reimburse the debts we incurred to pay for our lawyer and our parcels. We would be very grateful to everyone for their solidarity.

How much is needed?

1500€ — funds to pay the debts we took on the handovers and to pay the lawyer.
