Protest in front of Kazakhstan’s Embassy in Warsaw

Together with Mark Feygin, Alma Shalabayeva and Salim Shalabayev, we were protesting in front of the Kazakhstan’s Embassy in Warsaw in defence of political prisoners.

Refugees from Kazakhstan and activists demanded that imprisoned opposition representatives and activists be released and the extradition of dissidents be stopped. “Freedom for political prisoners” and “Shame on Nazarbayev” – the demonstrators were chanting in Polish and Russian. The manifestation participants also pointed to the use by Kazakhstan of Interpol mechanisms to chase political opponents – persons such as Alexander Pavlov, Tatiana Paraskevich and Mukhtar Ablyazov are fighting for justice in courts.
