Since 2014 many people that I care about have asked me: "how can you not support your own country?". And I have always answered "to support my own country - is to fight against Putin. He is anti-Russian, has always been."
He has driven Russia into the corner, made her the outcast of the world community. Ever since the first Maidan Ukraine has been demonstrating that there is another way - and that has always been the biggest fear of Putin.
My dream is that Russia will rid itself of Putin, hold fair elections, and will elect a government that will work towards aligning interests of Russia with the rest of the world.
I stand with Ukraine in their effort to be a civilized, independent country, and I sincerely hope that they will succeed, and inspire Belorussians and Russians to follow suit.
