It was a scream of despair, but also caused by an emotional rollercoaster that every and every indifferent Belarusian and Belarusian has since August 2020 – said Polish-Belarusian activist Jan Shostak in “Faktach po Faktach”, who shouted a shout in front of the Belarusian embassy in Warsaw on Monday.

Her protest took place after the events of Sunday. It was then that a Ryanair plane flying from Athens to Vilnius was forced to land in Minsk after allegedly reporting a bomb on board. Ryanair announced that it had received the landing order from controllers at the Belarusian airport. A fighter of the Belarusian armed forces was picked up on the plane.

The information about the bomb has not been confirmed. After landing in Minsk, the Belarusian militia detained the opposition journalist and blogger Raman Pratasiewicz on board. The Belarusian authorities searched for him with an arrest warrant.

On Monday in front of the Belarusian embassy in Warsaw a conference was held with the participation of the chairman of the European Parliament delegation for relations with Belarus, Robert Biedroń, and Belarusian activists operating in Poland.

– We need to send an SOS sign now. End of silence. We want support, otherwise the people who are now in Belarus will simply be killed by the regime, explained the Polish-Belarusian activist Jana Shostak at the time. “We can’t be silent anymore and all we have is a minute of screaming,” she said, raising a long cry in front of the embassy building.

“It was a cry of despair”

In “Fakty po Faktach”, Shostak explained that “it was a cry of despair, but also caused by an emotional rollercoaster that every and every indifferent Belarusian and Belarusian has had since August 2020”.

– Everyone used to think that in August 2020 there was the greatest torture and then a wave of protests. And most people think it’s gone quiet and nothing happens. It’s not true. It still happens. Every day, people are imprisoned and tortured for displaying ordinary white-red-white TV packaging (the colors of the traditional Belarusian flag, used by the opposition – editor’s note). In May 2021 in the 21st century – she emphasized.

– Unfortunately, all this stays in us for so long, and I am this shout on behalf of hundreds of people who help people forced to flee from Belarus to Poland for political reasons – she said.
