Rufina Bazlova presented T-shirts with traditional embroidery based on Belarusian protests
In Belarus, mass actions against the results of the presidential elections do not subside, according to the results of which Alexander Lukashenko won 80% of the vote, and his main opponent Svetlana Tikhanovskaya - 10%. Everyone shows a civic position in their own way: designers and artists, for example, through creativity. So, Rufina Bazlova created an Instagram page where she uploads drawings of traditional Belarusian embroidery. They depict police officers, paddy wagons and women leading the rest of the protesters. Baslova's drawings are embodied in T-shirts, which can be pre-ordered by writing to [email protected] “All profits will be passed on to the victims of the regime,” reads an Instagram post.
