We sit on the porch of a restored country house, surrounded by green hills and patches of forest. It seems serenity is spilling all over us like a fog. Suddenly the phone rings, Ales apologizes, says that the conversation is important, and goes out into the yard to talk.
The 2020 presidential election campaign is to blame. At first, Ales joined Viktar Babaryka's initiative group, collected signatures from the villagers, traveled around the country with Babaryka, and moderated meetings in the regions. And now, when Viktar Dzmitryevich has been removed from the election race, Ales travels around the Belarusian cities and gives speeches onstage at the rallies of Sviatlana Tikhanouskaya on how to protect one's voice during elections.
