We shouldn’t allow Putin’s and Lukashenko’s rage to have an impact on our relations with Belarusians and Russians living in Poznań

Information and support We shouldn’t allow Putin’s and Lukashenko’s rage to have an impact on our relations with Belarusians and Russians living in Poznań

❗️People react to war in a variety of ways ranging from fear, anger, fright, apathy, to the desire to act, the desire to find a person to blame, the desire for revenge. Let us remember, however, that it wasn’t the Russian nation that started the war – it was the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. And it was not the Belarusian nation that decided to join the war, but the Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. ❌Let’s not put the blame on random people just because of their nationality. Let’s not use their governments’ actions as an excuse to attack them. Let’s show solidarity and support to one another, regardless of nationality, but simply as people, as residents💓

The vast majority of Belarusian immigrants came to Poznań after 2020 as a result of rigged elections and the tragic reprisals that those who participated in protests faced. These people are also victims of the two dictators’ decision to start the war. 🥺We have been recently receiving information about housing contracts being terminated, people being fired from their jobs, as well as violent threats being directed at Poznań’s residents of Belarusian and Russian origin. This revenge is aimed at the wrong target. 🙏We ask you to refrain from displaying violence and aggression towards people who themselves are victims of Lukashenko’s regime, Putin’s politics; who themselves publicly denounce these dictators and the war that their home country has been dragged into. Let’s not carry out the agenda of Putin’s propaganda like this.
💛💙Слава Україні! Жыве Беларусь! 💪
