Support for Ukraine as Continuation of the Belarusian Revolution

Helping Ukrainians has become the main focus for the diasporas in the CEE

6 April 2022

Belarusians who live in CEE countries support Ukraine individually and as members of Belarussian organisations and initiatives in Poland, the Czech Republic and Lithuania.

The heroic fight against Russian aggression gave rise to an unprecedented wave of solidarity with Ukraine all over the world and especially in Central Eastern Europe (CEE). Countries there were the first to provide shelter for the millions of refugees. Many Belarusians offer their help as volunteers on the Polish-Ukrainian border, at the railroad stations in Kraków, Warsaw, Prague and other Central European cities, in regional refugee centres. 

There they assist as translators, some of them work as coordinators. Belarusians like other citizens of the countries in which they live, offer their homes to refugees and donate aid for Ukraine.

Roots in the Revolution

Looking closer at those Belarusian organisations in Central Europe, that actively support Ukraine and Ukrainians, reveals that almost all of them have their roots in the events of the Revolution of 2020.
