As of today, June 21, 2022, Russia’s barbaric war against Ukraine continues unabated. No one knows how long it will last and how it will end. Let alone when and how tourism to Ukraine will restart. Hopefully already in 2023, assuming that there will be peace by the end of 2022. In the meantime, literally […]
Ukraine will no longer be a tourist destination by 2022. When the war is over, construction starts. Hopefully in 2023 we will be able to offer trips again to the country that so heroically resists Russian aggression. Glory to Ukraine! Belarus is officially not at war, but as an accomplice of Putin it is indeed […]
By the end of 2021, the population of Belarus experiences unprecedented repression with nearly a thousand political prisoners already, and growing. That makes travel not a good option at the moment, not counting the pandemic and the lack of direct flights due to the sanctions against Belavia. If you wish, you can support the people […]
You will undoubtedly have noticed it; first the stolen elections in August 2020, then the massive street protests against the self-proclaimed president and then relative silence. But the opposition’s protest led by the rightful winner of the elections, Sviatlana Tichanouskaya, has never faded. And after the scandalous plane hijacking of May 23 to capture an […]
Belarusian opposition leader Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya has designated February 7 the Day of Solidarity with Belarus, calling on international leaders, activists, journalists, and all friends of the country to support protesters who have been demanding the resignation of strongman Alyaksandr Lukashenka and new elections. “Since the fraudulent presidential election of August 9, 2020, Belarusians have demanded […]
The Popular Revolt is still going on and especially on weekends many people take to the streets to continue to protest against the stolen elections and the violence from the authorities. Unfortunately, the uprising did not lead to a rapid retreat of Lukashenko. We are now for the long game. Last week, the EU indicated […]
As former President Lukashenko refuses to resign after the lost elections, the deadlock in Belarus remains. Unfortunately. From neighboring Lithuania, the new president, Svetlana Tichanovskaya, continues to fight for a peaceful change of power. The patience and peaceful nature of the population and the protests is already legendary. The people of Belarus show their true […]
Dictator Alexander Lukashenko, as expected, falsified the August 9 election results and did not accept his crushing defeat. At the time of writing, the actual winner, Svetlana Tichanovskaya, has fled the country to Lithuania to reunite with her children. This is unlikely to stop the protests, on the contrary. Of course traveling to Belarus, apart […]
Not really, judging from the remarks from President Lukashenko, that went all over the world in April. Fortunately, the large majority of the population knows better and does stick to social distancing and other required measures. Hopefully this will be sufficient to open the country in due time again, and keep casualties low.
March 2020 gives much time to improve and create websites, for reasons well-known. And therefore we could speed up the launch of this website, which comes to replace www.tourstobelarus.com, as we have added a country and tour programs in that country. We are talking about Ukraine of course.
