There is no one left of my friends and associates in the opposition’s Coordination Council. They are all in prison, or they have been thrown out of the country. The last, Maksim Znak, was taken today.

First they seized our country, and now they are seizing the best of us. But hundreds of others will come and fill the places of those who have been taken from our ranks. It is the whole country which has risen up, not just the Coordination Council. I want to say again what I have always said: that we were not attempting to start a coup. We did not want to split the country. We wanted to start a dialogue in society. Lukashenko has said he won’t speak ‘with the street’ – but the streets are filled with hundreds of thousands of people who come out to protest every Sunday, and every day. It isn’t the street, it is the nation.

People are coming out to protest with their small children because they believe they will win.

I also want to address the Russian intelligentsia, to call it by its old name. Why have you remained silent? We hear very few voices supporting us. Why don’t you speak when you can see this proud little nation is being crushed? We are still your brothers.

To my own people, I want to say this: I love you and I am proud of you.

And now there is another unknown person ringing at my door.

Il direttore di «Cholod» Maksim Zagovora gli ha scritto una lettera chiedendogli di rispondere a domande su guerra, carcere, compagni di cella, Russia e Aleksej Naval’nyj.

Voci dalla guerra: Oleksij Symonov

Il carismatico 44enne Oleksij Symonov lavora nell’organizzazione di iniziative e gare sportive. Ritiene che la comunicazione svolga un ruolo fondamentale: più di una volta lo ha aiutato non solo a sopravvivere in una Mariupol’ occupata, ma anche a mettere in salvo chi divideva con lui il rifugio.
