The Information Office is headed by journalist and media expert Yuliya Slutskaya. In the past, she was Editor-in-Chief and Head of the “European Radio for Belarus” Office in Minsk, Project Coordinator for the European Commission’s project in Belarus “Window to Europe, and Editor-in-Chief of the newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus”. Following the events of 19 December 2010 she was forced to leave Belarus, fleeing from persecution.
Solidarity with Belarus Information Office board members include the relatives of presidential candidates from 2010: Eva Nyaklyaeva, daughter of Vladimir Nyaklyaeu.
These women became public figures after the 2010 presidential elections. By silencing presidential candidates, by throwing them into jail and restricting them from communication with voters, as well as with their families and close friends, the regime could not manage to achieve the desired result - to make them silent and intimidated by silence. When presidential candidates were sent to prison, their families and supporters stood on their behalf. They took the responsibility to talk about the elections in Belarus at press conferences, in the European Parliament, and in the world’s leading media.
The Information Office closely cooperates with independent media, journalists and NGOs, both in Belarus and internationally, who support the democratization of Belarusian society, promotion of democratic values and spreading information about the situation in Belarus.
Solidarity with Belarus Information Office was officially registered in Poland on 16 March 2011.
