On September 6, ten political prisoners, defendants in the “Revolutionary Action” case, were sentenced at once in Minsk. In total, the imprisonment of the ten defendants, according to the plans of Lukashenko's accomplices, will amount to 94 years.

In 2020, seeking to defend my voice and that of the majority of Belarusians — I was detained under Article 23.34. After that, I faced trials, fines, re-arrest, a detention center, and the ultimate sentence: two years of home “chemo.” Needing support to help my family while I serve my sentence.

My loved one was sentenced under Articles 130 and 369 to 4 years in prison. I paid for the services of a lawyer, and in total the money spent accounts for more than 17,000 Belarusian rubles, plus compensation of moral damage to the victim in the amount of 1500 Belarusian rubles. I'm asking you to help me with the compensation of the money paid to the lawyer.

The struggle of the Belarusian people was an important choice for everyone. My wife and I made the right choice before God, Belarus and our conscience. We had to pay for it with the dearest things: our native home, family, and country, and to become abandoned abroad, having no possibility to return.

In 2021, my life and my family's life were divided into “before” and “after.” I was subjected to psychological and physical torture on Okrestin, after which I had to flee the country. Now my parents are subjected to political repression and pressure.

Since August 2020, I have actively participated in the protests in Minsk and have not been afraid to be in the hottest spots for the freedom of the Belarusian people. For this I was arrested and imprisoned first in jail, then in “chemo”.

I was forced to drop out of university and leave Belarus because of persecution for political reasons. A criminal case was brought against me under part 3 of Article 361-1 of the Criminal Code, which provides for up to six years in prison, for subscribing to the telegram channel ”Plan Peramoga”.

We, Natalia and Alexander, have tried to participate in all actions and protests since June 2020, for which we had to endure repression, detentions and political pressure. In order to stay free we decided to leave the country.

BYSOL fundraising

BYSOL is announcing a collection to equip squads of Belarussian volunteers who are fighting alongside Ukrainians against our common enemies, Putin and Lukashenko. Belarusians in territorial defense battalions have received weapons and ammunition, but there is a serious shortage of special equipment, protection and tactical medicine.
