Aid to Sergei Bondarenko — A political refugee convicted of distributing “extremist” materials

  • Story

Between 6.07.2022 and 21.07.2022 I was stationed at Okrestina. On July 22, I was dismissed from my job for the same reason. On October 28, I was again detained by police officers, who found “extremist” materials in my phone. 

I had distributed a film about my cousin Vasil Parfenkov (Syabro), who fought in Kalinovsky's regiment and was killed near Lisichansk on June 26. The phone was confiscated for a month for further investigation. I was prosecuted for distributing “extremist” materials. The phone contained a lot of Ukrainian and BCHB symbols and other things, which made the law enforcement officers furious. I understood that after examining my phone I would not get away with a day… 

They were going to take me to the TDF at 24 in Skorina, but then one of the officers said that the TDF would not take me, and they called an ambulance. They took me to the BSMP. After I was hospitalized I had to run away.

On Sunday the officers on duty at my mother's house were looking for me. With the help of the Belarusians I got out of Belarus. In the country where I am now — I am not allowed to work officially according to the laws of stay. I would be very grateful to anyone who would give me initial support.
