Aid to the Family of Political Prisoners Kim and Alexei Samusenko

  • Story

Since November 2020 there have been two more political prisoners in Belarus — the Samusenko family has detained two honest and decent people — brothers Alexei and Kim.

Searches were carried out at their homes. All computer equipment, phones and other items were confiscated. Searches also caught up with their parents.

Kim is charged under three articles of the Criminal Code: organization and preparation of actions that grossly violate public order; mass disorderly conduct; unauthorized access to computer information — breaking into the network of Minsk city executive committee.

Aliaksei Samusenka is charged under two articles of the Criminal Code (342 and 293).

On one of these articles alone the brothers face eight years of imprisonment!

In this situation 3 families suffered, not only having lost their close family members, but also finding themselves in a difficult financial situation.

Kim and Alexei's mother has no opportunity to work, since all of their time and resources go to support their sons.

The brothers also have families — Kim's daughter recently turned 1 year old and Alexei's son is 4 years old.

Despite the peculiarities of their current situation, they always try to support family, friends and new pen pals in their letters.

“I send all the rays of support from SIZO 1”, “I'm not going to admit that the lie is the truth. Now the truth is already known to everyone,” the brothers write.

Alexei and Kim are people who are not alien to such concepts as honor and justice. And they are not indifferent to the fate of the country in which they live.

Now it's our turn to show solidarity — let's help Kim and Alexei!

How much is needed?
