The World Bank, stop funding projects in Belarus until the government starts investigation into murders, torture, and abuse by police and special forces!

The majority of democratic countries did not recognize the results of the August Presidential elections in Belarus. Moreover, they called for an immediate stop of state violence. Belarusian people are subjected to imprisonment, fines, dismissals, torture, cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment. 

Over 20,000 thousand people who have taken part in the peaceful protests have been arrested and prosecuted over the past months. There are confirmed cases of death resulted from security officers’ brutality. And it will continue every day till the authorities have money to support the regime. 

The World Bank Group currently invests over $500 million in Belarus!

Being one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries, World Bank believe that development investments are needed to protect human capital, build sustainable peace, and ensure shared prosperity. In Belarus, they have many ongoing projects that invest money in different sectors. For example, there are Belarus Health System Modernization Project ($ 125.00 million), Belarus Development Policy Loan ($ 200.00 million), Road Upgrading and Modernization Project ($ 150.00 million) and others.

The World Bank has many important projects in Belarus, but right now, the funding does not fulfill its mission to secure peace. The government is corrupted, and all the money goes to maintain security forces instead. Right now, the best thing the World Bank can do is to freeze their projects in Belarus!


At the moment, not a single investigation into torture, abuse, or murder has been started by the Belarusian authorities. 

On the contrary, every single victim demanding an investigation becomes the target of state and police oppression.  

The only peaceful way to stop the violence is to stop any financial flow into the country! 

None of the projects will matter if killing and torture are not investigated!
