Anzhela Kambalova had to dismiss from a private firm by agreement of the parties on November 15.

The employer strongly advised the girl to dismiss after she had been tried and fined for distributing leaflets, Intex-press reports.

Anzhela Kambalova says the director of the firm, which sells bearings in Baranavichy, proposed her to quit after the trial. But firstly, the activist from Baranavichy was given a leave.

“I was told that politics and work don’t go together,” Anzhela said. “They said I could let the firm down, which may suffer from an inspection.”

Anzhela Lambalova has two children, one of them minor.

The dismissed activist does not have plans, but remains optimistic.

“A person in the Soviet Union had strict plans for the whole life,” Kambalova said. “This meant to graduate from school and then from university, find a job and work there until the retirement age. It’s all different now. I have worked for the firm for six years, I think I can find something better.” The activist from Baranavichy thinks whatever happens, happens for the best.

We remind that Anzhelika Kambalova was fined 350,000 rubles on October 17 for distributing leaflets inviting for the People’s Assembly.
