Support for the Belarussian volunteer who left his job to defend Ukraine

  • Story

My call sign was Help. At the end of August 2020, I was forced (like many Belarusians) to leave my homeland and go to Poland. After Russia's attack on Ukraine, I, in accordance with my views and principles, quit my well-paid job as a European truck driver and volunteered to defend Ukraine. I first joined the “Belarusian company” at Azov, then the Volot Battalion, where I stayed, and then joined the PKK. 

During combat operations in the Lysychansk-Severodonetsk area in June 2020, I was wounded (the main injury was my left shoulder and collarbone). After surgery (metal spokes and ligaments were inserted) and rehabilitation, I had to leave Ukraine and return to Poland to continue my work and help my brothers-in-law, at least somehow. However, because of the persecution of my relatives in Belarus, I was forced to apply for international protection myself.

Given the long period of no earnings, I was left with virtually no money, not only for travel, further treatment and removal of spokes, but even for living. 

I never expected to find myself in this situation, as I have always tried to help others. I hope that those who remember me, and just people who care about me, will help me to get back on my feet and continue my work. Now I need to go back to work as a driver and prepare for surgery.

How much is needed?

The amount I need is 500 euros. Taking into account the cost of communication (phone), which supports all the necessary functions for my work and other minimum expenses — that's a maximum of 500 euros.
