Polish athletes declared support and solidarity with Belarus
Top Polish athletes showed their support and solidarity with their colleagues and the whole Belarusian society amid the recent affairs developing in that country in a special video made under the auspices of the Sports Ministry.
The video “We are with you” (pl. “Jesteśmy z Wami”) is a response to an open letter of more than 360 Belarusian athletes, including world and Olympic champions, who strongly condemned “numerous instances of rigging the results of the presidential elections in Belarus” and the examples of flagrant violence by the security services against the peaceful protesters.
The Polish champions refer in their messages to the need for showing a special solidarity between Poles and Belarusians, which derives from a similar experience. Athletes underlined that freedom and solidarity are very important and that the situation in Belarus is now frightening.
