Kryscina Vitushka


Kryscina Vitushka is a cultural rights defender, advocating for the right of children to be educated in the Belarusian language. She is also a pro-democracy activist.

HRDs are systematically subjected to intimidation and harassment, including judicial harassment, restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly, and movement, as well as arbitrary detention and conviction, ill-treatment and defamation, searches of offices and personal belongings, and confiscations of equipment. The widespread impunity of law enforcement officers contributes to even further human rights violations and retaliations against HRDs.
