Berlin. Excitement at the Belarusian Embassy: Even in Berlin, the Belarusian head of state Lukashenko is no longer safe from criticism.

The embassy staff could read the following in the advertising boxes: “Stop the 2nd front!” and “Asylum for war resisters from Belarus now”. In addition, the logo of the opposition organisation “Nash Dom” (Our House) can be found on the posters. “War resisters from Belarus urgently need our support,” explains the action group LIDUS (“Lukashenko is stupid and stinks”). “That’s why we decided to have a solidarity action in front of the embassy.”

Finally, what should we do in the context of the war, being part of the diaspora in Poland? We have come up with a collective position on these and other issues, which are outlined in the following text.
