What we did not experience though is the cruelty of Lukashenka and his supporters, still in 2020, that are aggressively attacking all the people of Belarus, including students.
My mentee stayed in prison, was fined, was expelled from his university, risked to be sent to the national army, only because he openly expressed his position and disagreed with the falsifications in the presidential elections and the violence against people by the riot police.
He is among other 100+ students that were expelled from their universities since August 2020. We have university professors that lost their jobs, along with students that are still in the prison of KGB.
My mentee managed to escape the country first to Ukraine, then to Poland. He is safe in Warsaw now and is preparing for the new online semester at one of the European universities.
I would love to present him with a new laptop, so to make his European academic experience a smooth one!
If you can help me, please, do it here <3
