Ilya Mironov: "It is important to speak so that the stories of political prisoners are not lost in silence"

Ilya Mironov talks about caring for political prisoner Aliaksandr Birulia as part of the information campaign of our Foundation and the Dissidentby initiative "Until All are free."

"I chose Aliaksandr Birulia because I believe it is important to talk as much as possible about non-media individuals. In Belarus, there are many political prisoners whom few people know about. I strive to draw attention to their stories. I believe that everyone deserves a fair trial and respect for their rights.

Caring for political prisoners is not just an act of compassion; it is a moral and political duty. These people are deprived of freedom for their beliefs and positions. It is important to remember that they are people whose rights are violated, whose families suffer, and whose voices must be heard. Caring for them is a contribution to the fight for justice, democracy, and human rights in Belarus.

I try to draw attention to Aliaksandr Birulia's case through social media and interviews so that his story becomes known. I also interact with human rights organizations to ensure he has access to necessary legal aid and support.

In the future, I plan to continue informing about Aliaksandr Birulia's situation and calling for his release. I am also ready to support his family and provide all possible assistance in this difficult situation.

We must remember those who fight for freedom in Belarus. It is important to talk about them so that their stories do not get lost in silence.
