testing///////////////////////—> <p>Mass protests have rocked the country and represent the gravest threat to President Alexander Lukashenko’s rule since he took power 26 years ago.</p><p>Neighbouring countries from Ukraine to the Baltics have rolled out the welcome mat for people like Korolevsky and are wooing companies to relocate with fast-track immigration procedures, tax breaks and help finding office space.</p><p>Poland, for example, has set up a 24-hour hotline and offered fast visas, Polish language classes for children and funding for start-ups.</p><p>Some Belarusian tech firms are transferring employees abroad or looking to move out altogether, saying a crackdown on protests made employees feel unsafe and internet blackouts disrupted business.</p><figure class=”article-mad”

up professionals from a thriving industry that accounts for 5% of Belarusian exports.</p><p>Some 2,000 IT workers moved from Belarus to Ukraine since mass protests broke out following the Aug. 9
