Supporting ambulance paramedic Anastasia Kalashnikova in exile

  • Story

Anastasia worked as a paramedic on a traveling ambulance crew. She successfully combined work in the ambulance and sports: the paramedic repeatedly won the championships of Belarus in Thai boxing (Muay Thai), kickboxing, was a medalist in international tournaments and a master of sports. 

During the COVID epidemic, she honestly informed the public about the state of the healthcare system in Belarus. In August 2020, Anastasia's brigade transported the wounded from the torture chamber on Okrestina. In January of this year the paramedic was detained near the metro station “Pushkinskaya” — she was laying flowers at the place of death of Alexander Taraikovsky. She was tried at the time for participation in an unsanctioned action and fined 870 rubles. 

On September 1 her contract with the ambulance company was not renewed. After several close friends were detained, Anastasia was forced to leave Belarus and go to Poland.
