I am a highly experienced clinical psychologist with 20 years of experience in the field, including both experience in various clinics and in the education system, had my own private practice for many years, and taught psychology in higher education for over 15 years.
I have invested a lot in my country and since the beginning of harsh political events and repressions I could not remain indifferent to what was going on. I took and am taking an active part in political opposition events that contribute to the fight against the authoritarian regime of our government.
Since August 11, 2020 I actively participated in rallies. I organized various actions, revolutionary photo shoots in the style of the BCB flag and other symbols to work in social networks. At rallies, I organized posters for protesters to express their political opinions and attitudes toward the situation. Conducted actions-cards to political prisoners.
Conducted an opposition action near the monument of Princess Irina Paskevich in Gomel on October 2, 2020 and was detained by the riot police. As a result of prolonged pressure on me by the police, my state of health deteriorated and I was called an ambulance and sent to the hospital after my phone was confiscated.
Subsequently, I was subjected to pressure by police officers as repeated home visits, as well as preventive conversations with the threat of dismissal by my superiors at the Gomel Institute for Educational Development, where I worked as a senior lecturer on the basis of a letter from the police officers.
Since December 2020 I created and maintained a telegram channel “Shchuchynskaya Maysternya”, which was devoted to the struggle against the regime in Belarus. The channel contained photos and videos of arts and crafts in the colors of the national flag — red and white, criticism of Lukashenko, and revolutionary poems.
On June 1, I was detained by the officers of GUBOPIK as an administrator of the channel for my revolutionary work. After the trial I was charged with administrative violation and got 10 days in custody. The channel was removed by employees of GUBOPiK. After 10 days of isolation, I was fired from the institute where I worked as a senior lecturer.
After leaving prison I continued my revolutionary activities, opened and led a new telegram channel “Lukovitsa”, and I am also one of the administrators of the “Minsk Gulag” chat room.
GUBOPiK employees continued to monitor me as home visits. I had to leave the country and move to continue my revolutionary work.
At first in June I was left without work and without means of livelihood.
I'm restoring the channel deleted by GUBOPIK, preparing materials for a YouTube channel on psychological support for people suffering from political depression and post-traumatic stress disorder after the repression, as well as an educational project-book-bcc psychological fairy tales for children with the promotion of the national idea and symbolism.
How much is needed?
3605 € — Since there is no way to find a job at the moment. The equipment has been taken away — there is no way to continue the revolution fully.
