“I was called up to serve in the Belarusian army”
illustration for @narazurnalistika for an article about the drastic measures young men in Belarus take to avoid serving in a military service. The anonymous man is sharing his story in the article about spending two weeks in a mental hospital to give a Belarus army a miss.
“At the reception, the doctor asked, “Why did you come here? You don’t want to serve so bad that you decided to go to the madhouse? ”And without looking at me, she continued to skim my documents from the military commissariat. I sensed the irony in her tone, I realised that I am not the only one like that in this place.”
