Alisa Ganieva signed the joint statement of PEN Moscow, the Free Word Association and St. Petersburg club about the egregious situation in Belarus.
«A neighboring country, to which we are blood-related, shouts in two languages: Belarusian and Russian. About the totally falsified election. About the exiled and imprisoned candidates. About thousands of Belarus residents, who have been beaten, humiliated, and thrown into detention centers. And, in fact, about the coup d'etat. We cannot but respond to this outcry. The citizens of Belarus are defending basic human rights: the freedom to think, choose, speak, live, and breathe. In Minsk, Grodno, Brest, Gomel and Polotsk, as well as in many other cities, law enforcement agencies act as real execution squads».
