My name is Eugene Nitsinsky. In 2020 I, like many people, could not get past the lies, violence and injustice, especially before and after the election. That's why I became an activist in my hometown Myadel. I helped with organizing rallies, car rallies and other actions.
For participation in one of the rallies I was prosecuted under Article 23.34 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Republic of Belarus (Violation of the order of organizing or holding mass events) and fined 25 basic units.
When the activity of the main protests subsided, I continued my activities in the underground. However, I realized that sooner or later they could come to me, and it happened at the end of November 2021. I was searched and charged in a criminal case. After the interrogation at the ROVD, which lasted 4 hours, I was released. Immediately after that I decided to leave the Republic of Belarus.
I went to Ukraine and started the process of obtaining a humanitarian visa to Poland. After receiving the visa, I crossed the border and applied for international protection in January 2022.
I spent some time in a refugee camp, but due to the effects of the coronavirus suffered in 2021, it was difficult for me to do physical work. With the outbreak of war in Ukraine, my psychological state deteriorated.
After receiving refugee status, I found myself in a difficult situation due to problems with housing and work. In February 2023, I had suicidal thoughts and ended up in the suicide ward of the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw. Mental exhaustion caused by the difficulties of emigration and other circumstances led me there.
After a course of treatment, I left the hospital and tried to start solving my problems again. However, after 2 months I had a psychological breakdown and returned to the ward. I was offered a new course of treatment, but to break this vicious circle I need long-term psychotherapy and regular consultations with a psychologist.
That is why I am appealing to you with a request for help!
I have plans to continue to help those in need, to work. But at the moment I am in need of help myself.
Please help me break this cycle of hardship and get back to being active. As the saying goes, “Put the mask on yourself first…” .
To everyone who responds, I want to say a huge thank you. Your support makes a huge difference and can make a difference in someone's life, in this case mine.
