In Salihorsk, civil society activists have again sent postcards with words of support to Belarusian political prisoners.

“Against the backdrop of Putin's aggression in Ukraine
we sometimes here that our dictatorship is not that bad”, comments one of the participants of the action, Uladzimir Shyla. “However, we should bear in mind that Belarus still has seven political prisoners, including the former presidential candidate Mikalai Statkevich, and we have no right to forget about them”.

Young activist Uladzimir Lemesh, who has recently become a victim of the state repressive machine himself, confirms the importance of people's solidarity: “
These people are a true example of fortitude and invincibility. And I believe they will meet all challenges with dignity and soon we will be able to see them all at large”.

The activists call all people of good will
not to be indifferent, not to be afraid to express their solidarity and actively support all Belarusian prisoners of conscience in this difficult period of life.
