URGENT! A PUSSY RIOT MEMBER WENT MISSING IN BELARUS. WE FEAR HE WAS AMONG MANY ARRESTED AND BEATEN BY LUKASHENKO’S DICTATORSHIP

Kiryl Masheka – our comrade, friend, member of Pussy Riot, has been detained at the protests in Minsk.

The last time Kirill got in touch was on the evening of August 9th. Yesterday, we found his name on the Vyasna (human rights center) detainee list.

What is happening in Belarus should be screamed loudly to the whole world. For several days, new evidence of the absolutely wild cruelty of the Belarusian security floods on the Internet. Lukashenko’s bandits take peaceful people hostage, beat them, torture, and hold them in inhuman conditions. It is impossible to look at the footage of the torture of the detainees except with a feeling of horror. Think about it, monsters, you are torturing unarmed people!

Our heart goes out to the people of Belarus now. We are proud of your courage and infinite fortitude. We believe that you can win this battle ❤️ 💪✌️

Dear friends, if you know anything about where Kirill is now, please contact us!
