Pavel Latushko held a meeting with the EU Permanent Representative to Belarus Dirk Schubel and informed the EU Permanent Representative about the three campaigns initiated by the NAM:

— Not a cent for the war

Humanitarian residence permits and humanitarian visas will be issued to all needy citizens of Belarus, regardless of whether they entered the territory of Poland from Ukraine after February 24, or came to the country for other reasons. The main purpose is to help Belarusians who fled the war in Ukraine.
