One of the seats was left empty to symbolize the virtual presence of human rights defender Ales Bialiatski at the presentation of the annual report of the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders in Kyiv, Ukraine, on 8 December. That’s how the All-Ukrainian Association of Civil Human Rights Actions expressed support to Bialiatski.

On 11 December a youth action in support of Belarusian political prisoners took place in the center of Kyiv.  11 air lamps with portraits of political prisoners were launched into the air on Vladimirskaya Gorka. The action was watched by hundreds of Kyiv citizens.

After this, action participants proceeded to the central post office of Kyiv to send postcards to Belarusian prisoners of conscience.
