We will never forget that day and this year. During this time, Belarusians inside the country and abroad have launched a real anti-war movement: rail partisans, collecting and sending information about the movements of enemy’s military equipment, informational work. Of course, Belarusian volunteers and fighters, the absolute majority of Belarusians sided with Ukraine.
In response to this, Lukashenka only continued and increased support for Putin and repression against Belarusians: thousands were arrested, hundreds were illegally sentenced to long terms even for comments on social networks, for solidarity.
National leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya called on Belarusians who were forced to leave the country after 2020 to join rallies and actions of solidarity with the people of Ukraine tomorrow, February 24.
«Tomorrow will be a year since the war started, which should not last a day. And Belarusians do not forget about it. In our country, where they sentence people for yellow and blue ribbons, start a criminal case for the song of the band «Okean Elzy», it is impossible to go out with the national flags of Ukraine and Belarus.
But we can do it abroad. Therefore, tomorrow Belarusians will go out in Austria, Brazil, Great Britain, Germany, USA, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Finland, France, Montenegro, Sweden, Estonia and other countries of the world. Join us!» Tsikhanouskaya wrote.
If you are not in Belarus, you can join the anti-war action. Take our white-red-white flags with you and look for a rally in your city on dze.chat.
P.S. If there will be a solidarity rally in your city tomorrow too, but it is not on the map yet, write to @dzechat_bot.
