The site «Polska Prawda» published an article by representatives of the Belarusian opposition Olga Klaskovsky. In January 2013 the first part of the article ("Norwegian concentration camp"), reprinted in many publications and bloggers, the second part of the article Klaskouski ("Swedish madhouse") promises to be no less interesting. Critical perception of the realities of Western staunch opponent of course taken in Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has caused wide public response.

Interest in the issues raised Klaskouski increased after the publication of the report of the Foreign Ministry of Belarus on human rights violations in the EU and U.S. as well as in the Netherlands, following the suicide of the Russian opposition leader Alexander Dolmatova.
Klaskovsky Olga is the daughter of the famous Belarusian political scientist Alexander Klaskouski, and sister of the Belarusian opposition, an active participant of mass protests in Minsk on December 19, 2010 (in final presidential campaign) Alexandra Klaskouski. According to the commentary to the publication Klaskouski together with her daughter in 2006, was in Poland as a political refugee. Was opposition organization "Young Front", collaborated with the Belarusian opposition and Western publications, as well as the Polish NGO, was among the initiators of the preparation of the Polish Senate resolutions on the situation in Belarus. From Poland Klaskovsky and daughter moved to Norway, then — in Sweden.In the spring of 2011 Klaskouski left Sweden and arrived in Minsk, where the trial took place on the "case on December 19" — in Minsk, she was detained by the Interior Ministry and, according to the opposition media, beaten former colleagues brother in the service of the police. Then she went to Sweden, married a national of the Kingdom of Sweden and had a second child. According to the decision of the authorities of Sweden, she and her daughter refused a residence permit, the government's decision can not be appealed. In early February, the Swedish authorities have taken away Klaskouski son and warned her of the deportation. IA REGNUM article cites a number of pieces with the author Klaskouski style.
"I did so many stories did the democratic values of Europe and the solidarity of the European Community on the Belarusian issue. I'm day-to-day daldonila his listeners, wrote to the readers of European democracy, of what Europe thinks of Belarus and our problems. And, of course, that will never leave us in the lurch. How many cups of coffee we rehash the same European diplomats and other missionaries in Minsk, Warsaw, at various buffets / banquets — all waving their arms: they say, well done guys! Fight for democracy in Belarus! We are with you! And never leave you in the lurch. For you — the future of Belarus! When touched real help — all waving hands and gushing once his butt to the chest, instantly vanished — wrote Klaskovsky. — The whole system of protection of "the rights of refugees' rights in general and is based on total lies, hypocrisy, continuous violations, abuse and humiliation."
"In August 2009, I had to run out of Poland. The main reason, which pushed for escape: during the vicissitudes of court with Belarus Poland transferred all my data dictatorial (as defined themselves as Poles and the Polish government) Belarusian regime. Was grossly violated the Geneva Convention on the Protection of Refugees. Shortly after the incident, to me, was attacked with a stabbing. Performer and the customer is still not found. I will not be protected, and not even going to. Despite the fact that before the tragedy, I repeatedly asked police for protection, reports the facts of the multiple threats to write applications — including the name of the Minister of Internal Affairs of Poland. "
In Norway Klaskouski not like the way she was treated in the police station in Oslo: "In the room, so to speak, out of about a hundred people, most of whom — come from African countries. The room is boarded up on all sides, terrible stench. Choking. With horror begin to realize that we are only practically alone there are white. Part of Africans watching us with interest and disbelief. Most — ostentatiously contemptuous. It takes a few hours — so we did not call anybody and anywhere. " According Klaskovsky, she was not allowed to buy adequate food for their children. At the request of a patient, police officers did not react. Close to midnight part arrived "as hardened convicts, murderers of the last — in a police car with bars," was taken to the hostel — the rest, including women slept on the floor in the police station.
The next evening with Klaskouski a conversation "in the boorish, humiliating manner" with threats. "The host with us" road intervyu "more like a police Alsatian than competent representative of the authorities. First long to prove to us that we — the Poles, the citizens of the EU, so azyul in Norway can not ask. Although in our Geneva documents in black and white: "citizenship — Belarus." But unless it is given to understand Downey? Then, at her request came even some "experts" and then had endless phone calls on the house phone, then someone else came, "- said Klaskovsky. Later, it is more correct to another police officer had a conversation — the Norwegian Albanian descent.
"And here we are in Tanum transit camp, near Oslo. I have the feeling that I was somewhere in Kabul or Mogadishu … Around the ruins and creepy dirty barracks. Forest. Zero civilization. Somali national overalls play ping-pong. Neighing wildly for some reason. White one. Man 5-7. Sympathy, solidarity exchanged glances, — the article says. — After checking we immediately made on cleaning duty. Scapegoats, in other words. This means that we had to wash the entire floor plus toilets (common) and shower. I absolutely refuse. With this African-Afghan contingent … — still not enough to pick up any infection! Who they are generally tested for the presence of any disease / infections? Plus the neighboring Armenian doctor by profession, said that recently there accidentally found one Negro with malaria … Armenian wrote a complaint to UDI and various health services in this regard. The reaction is zero. What are the toilets? .. I was given another duty the next day. Although the rules of the camp, take part in cleaning it. In the camp at the time — a minimum of 100 people living. I spent 5 days in Tanum and for five days did not see any black man who'd cleaned there. That the Serbs, Macedonians. In short, the only white (there are on one hand could be counted) … How does this all mean? The main contingent workers Tanuma — the same immigrants. Refugees who have received the status in Norway. "
In Tanum fed bad "for dinner — a plate of pasta and tea (in my opinion, no welding). All crowded eatery Somalis and Afghans. Eaten by hand. Belch. The child refuses to eat. I take along a couple of slices of bread and cheese. At the entrance I inhibit workers Arabs. They say, so they say, and so: nothing can be carried out of the dining room. Explain the situation. I say that to a dream far away, the child still wants to eat — wrote Klaskovsaya. — Over time, I began to understand the reasons for this behavior. During all the time that happened to take place in Tanum bastards workers drove me with hard-hitting proposals. Scumbag who took a sandwich from Myra (daughter Klaskouski — IA REGNUM), plain text proposed shortly, "And let's go for a walk together … I'll then very much bread and cheese loose it take from the dining room! Never be hungry with me. " An employee receiving too suddenly something often "to visit." When I asked, "What do you want from me?" Brazenly retorted: "Everything!" We were coming off in full. Of course, some Slavic faces suddenly appeared here, and even the right to rock! Yes, and even journalists! ".
Then Klaskouski with rebenokm, mother and bedding moved to another transit camp: "This transit camp with a wonderful name Hashlemon located on the border with Sweden. Also in the forest. We lodge in the eight-women's room. The main contingent — Palestine, Iraq, China, and Iran. Couples disconnect. Husband throw in a man's "camera", his wife — in women. Like, there are no places to settle family together … But what the article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights "the right of the family"? .. And in general, all kinds of convention rights, fundamental freedoms? .. And what a Scandinavian-down in general has the right to disconnect the husband and wife? Especially, in exile — when people close so need each other, in mutual support. "
In Hashlemone Klaskouski daughter started attending the local school, "It's not even a school, and a drama club. A few hours a day. In the evening come to take her — a child … no! .. I run around the camp, to the administration, was about to call the police … It turned out that the teacher considered possible to transfer the child to "any first comer."
"We lived in Hashlemone about two weeks. Not live and be tormented. The feeling is that I threw him into the men's area … About a thousand people — the majority of Arabs, Somalis and Iranians. And almost exclusively men. Can you imagine a situation in which I, a woman with a strong Slavic type of appearance, had to get there — writes Klaskovsky. — In the dining room we were fed like cattle. Plus an iron, reusable utensils (after a case of malaria as a not very pleasant to eat from plates / spoons / forks shared use). The menu — then pasta, then Fig. The meat was given only once or twice. The child is almost impossible to sustain. Many people, including myself, sat there stomachs. Many chronic diseases are aggravated. Reaching out to the doctor — fantastic. Unreal. When asked for milk in the dining room for a child, said that is not allowed. Like, only up to 6 years … 8 is no longer a child, in their understanding. He nutrients, calcium is not needed. "
"In the camp, the local inhabitants, Papuans immediately gave me the nickname of" Marilyn Monroe. " That's funny. And in Hashlemone could hire great. For this it was necessary to pay a few euros and leave to pledge his azyulyantskuyu ID-card. We were paid a small allowance — CZK 200-300, already do not remember exactly. This is minuscule, but big enough. I'm going to take long. Local steward — of our own, azyulyantov. Somali man with sad eyes. You have my ID. His facial expression changed dramatically, "- says the publication. It appeared that Somali Klaskouski considered "racist" and explained: "You have written here in the ID that you are from" White Russia "(in Norwegian Hviterussland — so they derisively called Belarus, no more, no less — approx. Aut. ) Do you have that, there is only white live? Are not you from the Ku Klux Klan? ".
Fugitive opposition activist had to explain to the Somalis that it is — from the "European sovereign independent state called Republic of Belarus, and then the same thing to explain to local authorities, to receive stories Klaskouski with undisguised skepticism:" By the way, not once cursed with the UDI on the "White Russia". For me, Belarusians, it is more than an insult, that my country is called is not clear how. There are officially the Republic of Belarus. And the point. Norgay me and my patriotism long laughed. Very often, by the way, the local administration to call me Russian, and one official UDI even somehow "knowingly" "sympathized": they say, oh, yes, I understand that journalists are not easy to live in Russia … and suddenly it occurred to me I am from a country that does not exist! .. I do not! ".
Then Klaskouski was in the third camp — NERD: "All asylum seekers are eagerly awaiting transfer to the third camp. After the torments of hell, hunger and abuse is something like paradise in the understanding of the Scandinavian azyulyanta. Finally beginning to pay more or less acceptable benefit, it is possible to buy the products themselves and to cook. And the camp itself is more like home environment than the zone. We were sent into some abandoned village near the village of NERD — is 40 km from Stavanger. Steppe around … and pig farms. The nearest shop — seven kilometers. Corps camp also vaguely resemble zone. But inside — more or less. Family lodge in the relatively new power. "
The third camp Klaskouski wondering about the reasons for his flight from Poland and the malevolence of the authorities of Norway, "But what about in my case — when Poland entirely violated the Geneva Convention? Which such help this state I can expect if I gave up and sold it to the guts, even without batting an eye? .. Believe: Norwegians do not care! Like spit on the thousands and millions of other lives. Their only dream and goal — to finish you mentally and physically through humiliating detention in concentration camps azyulyantskih, boorish, fascist attitude and total disregard for any of the rights and laws. Them the law is not written. They live by the rules. Even if I am, and ever will beat the Polish gate, then it will be a problem in Poland, but not in Norway. FIG Norgay need it? Therefore their problem — how to get rid of people like me (preferably generally deport) or create such unbearable living conditions / content (which they successfully do), individual choice and there escaped. And, believe me, a lot to do that — collect belongings and ran away, because I felt that already are on the brink — another second, and damage by reason, go mad, die! ".
School for the Worlds Klaskouski was far helped the Poles, "Well, that time met with the local Poles. They were taken every morning on the machine of their children to the same school — and at the same time with a little world we catch. Back too, she returned with them. " "Several times we urgently needed medical care — was refused. Plus forced to pay. One Somali there just dying in the waiting administration, in my eyes lost consciousness — "fast" refused to go. Like, let tomorrow come to the reception. Tooth pulled too fantastic. Have to pay a large part of the benefit. And then live on that for a month? What to eat? "- Wondered politbezhenka.
"I have so generally there was an unenviable position. The only girl-Slav. Around thousands of Africans and Afghans. Protection in a camp there. Anarchy. No one is responsible for anything. And the nearest police, in which case — 40 km. After lunch at the camp from the administration has no one. Only some Papuans around. Eerie darkness. No lights, basic lighting. I always broke the windows in the room. Broken door. Stick. Humiliated. Tried to buy, pay the money. There was a period when it just did not go out at all. Millions of times talking to local authorities about this. Requested protection. Not for that, I ran away to Norway to also here to have more problems and harassment. But I'm no one would not hear. Local steward came, and putting in new glass — the issue was solved! Congress I and the local branch of Amnesty International. They have refused to help me and not even listened to the end, — writes Klaskovsky. — Realizing that I buy are more problems than I have, and that all may soon come to a tragedy that no help is not necessary to wait, I decide to leave urgently to Sweden. I voluntarily stops the process in Norway and buy a ticket to Gothenburg. "
"I knew I had that in Sweden, I was in for an even bigger hell — hell squared or cubed. Even in such a thriller, perhaps, did not see ", — stated Klaskovsky, promising to tell about Sweden in the second part of the article.
Russian newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda" interested in history Klaskovsky and published her interview, saying: "You understand that a man suspected of sympathizing with the Russian authorities (not to mention the Belarusian) is impossible. The more valuable it becomes evidence with which to face the reality of those who want to "dump over the hill", belly myself that there someone needs them … As opposition leader Alexander mistakenly thought Dolmatov recently hanged himself in a Dutch prison. "
Describing the reasons for the negative attitude towards migrants from Eastern Europe, Klaskouski noted that it is "a rule without exception." According to her, granted a residence permit in Sweden, Africans and Arabs, among whom she lived — "basically — parasitic elements that have never been integrated here, never the language they learn, will not respect this culture."
"People do not even know how to use the toilets. We had to teach. And when I, as a mother of Swedish citizens, among these 111,000 no place, it warps. As they are all formulated and attitudes — a natural inhuman bestiality. My eldest daughter to school stoned Miroslav Arabs. I even called the police shot at beating the child. Police photographed bruises. And then the case was closed. Police — Native Swedes — says: you do need to understand that they have a different culture, "- said a refugee from Belarus.
Klaskovsky noted that in Sweden, the attitude of not significantly different from the Norwegian: "It's just for mocking, scornful. No title. I can not use this medicine, although officially married, I can not get a child fiat. You know, a little more — and I begin to think that we have human rights in Belarus, more respected. In particular, with regard to family law, women's rights and children's rights. When we are going through a difficult period in family relationships, local social services to children and I guarantee full support. As it turned out, only in words. I was the middle of winter, and children thrown out of community life onto the street. Like, pay rates will no longer be, go where you want. "
According to the Belarusian opposition activist, she has thought of suicide, and does not rule out suicide in the Netherlands, the Russian opposition leader Alexander Dolmatova could be caused by the same problems faced by herself in Scandinavia. "Most likely, the way it is. Speaking frankly, and I'm one step from the last time, too, was. Children are kept — they have the same one will be left. Who, besides me. So good look at it all, which is understandable: it is necessary to have more courage to not break here. "
