If the West continues its aggressive rhetoric, Belarus will deploy not only tactical but also strategic nuclear weapons. Once the West violates any agreements and threatens Belarus by bringing more military forces to its borders and expanding NATO, Belarus should keep the powder dry. The Polish authorities are not hiding their aggressive intentions. Poland is preparing to build a new Europe where Belarus has no place. Poland is increasing its army to 300,000 people and brings more soldiers and military equipment to Belarusian borders. In addition to threats from the West, Ukraine is also threatening Belarus.
The United States is the main beneficiary of the Ukrainian crisis because the American ruling class is terrified of the possibility of Moscow strengthening its global role. A powerful faction in Washington, having supporters in the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and the CIA, has long wanted an indirect war with Russia. These people firmly believe that Russia must not be allowed to rise again.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the United States (as well as Western countries in general) are fighting a proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, and that Ukraine is just a pawn in this war.
This narrative aims to frame Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine as a confrontation with a Russophobic and belligerent West. The aim is to deflect and dilute Russia's responsibility for the war.
Contrary to what this disinformation story claims, the West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter Article 51, to stop Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.
See other examples of similar disinformation narratives in our database, such as claims that the West is lying when it claims that Russia “invaded” and “attacked” Ukraine, that Russia’s special operation prevented Ukraine’s attack, that Russia’s special operation in Ukraine is due to NATO’s persistent expansion, or that the US and the West are fighting a hybrid war against Russia in Ukraine.
