Disinfo: On European instructions, Belarusian opposition willing to be infected with coronavirus to infect others


Isolated Europe-instructed anarchists in Brest, Belarus to take to the streets to spread coronavirus. Lately corona-opposition has spread to other Belarusian cities. Their task is not just to destabilise the situation in Belarus by spreading fear, but to infect as many people as possible and therefore harm the national health care system. This would allow Europe to criticise Belarus for human rights’ violations and to impose sanctions on Belarusian authorities. Today, members of the Belarusian opposition are willing to be infected with coronavirus for money. This would allow them to infect others, they are paid for each infected person. For this reason, they take to squares and call on other people to do the same. This is the essence of their electoral campaign. All who take part in it can be called traitors of the motherland and their own people.


Conspiracy theory and preposterous claims about financial payments for infecting the population with coronavirus, aimed at discrediting the West and Belarusian opposition. This disinformation message is a modification of a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and inflict various forms of damage upon the Belarusian state and society. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the Belarusian opposition, civic activists and independent journalists make kill lists for Western security bodies, that pro-Western Belarusian opposition prepares 'kill lists' and genocide, and that the Belarusian opposition plans genocide with coronavirus-infected, Soros-funded, test tubes, given by Pompeo. All these cases were published by pseudo-regional Belarusian websites associated with the pro-Kremlin propaganda network, as explained here.
