Guys, as many of you may already know that our colleague and B2B Doc fellow Maksim Shved, while shooting footage covering the protests, was captured and detained by belarussian authorities. As I understand from… More social media, his relatives still do not know where he exactly is and what is his condition. Thinking of how we can help from abroad I understood that we should raise awareness online and offline and express our support to Maksim and his family. A word of mouth may keep prisoners from getting critical injuries, since tortures definitely take place in belarussian prisons according to the witnesses. Please, write posts, join actions of solidarity with Belarus in your countries and speak up about Maksim there. Also, maybe we can work out a sort of a collective statement from our community. Please, feel free to join and discuss more possible actions in the comments. #freeshved
