Alexey Kudin is a multiple world champion in Muay Thai and kickboxing, as well as a prominent MMA fighter from Maladzyechna, Minsk Region, Belarus. For over 15 years he has proudly represented his country on the world’s arena, making the national flag raised up high, and having the national anthem played in his people’s honor. Recently, the father of 5 has become one of more than 30,000 Belarusians, who have been unlawfully detained, beaten, tortured, and imprisoned, following the 2020 Belarusian presidential election last August.
The official election result credited Alexander Lukashenko with 80% of the vote, and he was re-elected for the sixth term. The result wasn’t recognized by the EU, neither by the United States nor by other democratic countries. Lukashenko is the first and only person in the office, who has been in power for over 26 years. His regime is dubbed “The Last Dictatorship in Europe’’, where freedom of speech is a myth, political opponents get jailed or disappear with no trace, where anyone with the opposite to the government opinion is subjected to repressions, including massive fines and time in jail, often equivalent to torture.
