After my release, the first deputy head of the ROVD told me that if before they were hindered by the law, now he could eliminate me and my whole family by all illegal means. Because of this our family had to urgently leave Belarus. Now we are in a difficult financial situation and we will be very grateful for support until we can get our documents drawn up and be able to find employment.

As of this writing, only 18 days have passed since Yevgeny Chervinsky was released from prison. He is now in a refugee camp and needs help for adaptation, dental treatment, and rent.

BYSOL fundraising
