Eric Neumann, a protester during the January 6 ‘Stop the Steal’ rally, is seeking asylum in the Eastern European Republic of Belarus, as a consequence of him being “persecuted by the U.S. government”.
Neumann was introduced on the Belarusian media network ‘Belarus 1’, which appeared to provide far more accurate coverage of the January 6 situation than the liberal-dominated U.S. mainstream media.
The network described Neumann as a “simple American” who “looked for justice and asked uncomfortable questions, but lost practically everything and is being persecuted by the U.S. government.”
Hundreds of January 6 protesters have been arrested and detained in abysmal conditions in Washington, D.C., following their participation in the demonstrations against Joe Biden’s rigging of the 2020 elections.
The presenter of the show noted how the increasingly violent, anti-white environment in the United States had led people to take the “difficult to imagine” step of seeking asylum in a much poorer country.
“Judging by his story, [Neumann] is the same type of simple American whose shops were burned by Black Lives Matter activists,” the presenter added.
Neumann stressed his innocence during the interview with the Belarusian reporters, denying “wholly without merit” FBI claims that he attacked the police. He gave his perception of the events of January 6.
“When I was outside the Capitol, nobody came in through the windows, there were hundreds of people, and after a man broke a window and invited us in, told us to come in, nobody did it,” he said. “And that’s how the government has been creating these situations since the 1990s that they test on us, and call it a terrorist event or something like that.”
Neumann also described how he had initially left America for Ukraine before he was charged with anything, but was put under authoritarian surveillance by the SBU, the secret police of the U.S.-installed Ukrainian regime.
“[The surveillance] is awful,” he said. “This is political persecution.”
Following this, Neumann fled by foot to Belarus, a neighboring country to Ukraine that has been at odds with Western globalists following an unsuccessful attempted Soros-backed color revolution there last year against national-populist President Alexander Lukashenko.
Following Lukashenko’s victory in the 2020 elections in Belarus, U.S. deep state authorities and Soros-funded NGOs chose to instead recognize the losing candidate, liberal Sviatlana Tshikanouskaya. Joe Biden and other leading globalists demanded that Lukashenko commit to a so-called “peaceful transfer of power”. Lukashenko refused the globalists’ edicts, and remains in power today.
According to Belarusian migration authorities, three U.S. citizens have applied for asylum in Belarus so far in 2021. It is unknown whether the other cases are linked to the events of Jan 6 or subsequent persecution of patriotic Trump supporters by the Biden administration.
